[Samba] Failed mount of Windows share on Linux box

I was reading the message wrong.  I thought it was unable to find the
windows share. oops.
 I am compiling from the SRPM found on the samba website.  With a stock
kernel.  Any guess where the command went or why I am missing it.  You are
right though.  It is not in /usr/bin/ where I would expect to find it.

Thanks for the help

There's your clue.  "smbmnt" couldn't be found, so the final step
