	I have the mount points ... thanks.

	Okay, I think I am going to download the rpm's made by the 
Samba team and see if that makes a difference, because I am 
sure that the Samba Team have tested this on RedHat 7.2.

		And I know I am doing this right, because with RH's rpm 
samba*-2.2.1a.rpms which ship with RedHAt 7.2, I was able to 
mount these mounts that I have ( three of them ). So, either 
my package, which I made of a clean full install of RedHat 
7.2 with all the update rpm's from their ftp site added on 
before the compile.  I have also tried another box, which 
has the same problems. So, I am going to do the download of 
Samba Team's rpm and come back to everybody.

	Thanks again for the advice.
