Sort of. It's an installation issue. The 2.2.3a rpm(?) you used to install
put smbmnt in the wrong place / didn't modify smbmount to find it.

smbmount looks for BINDIR/smbmnt and if that fails it looks for it in the
path (note that the path used by mount at exec() time is not necessarily
the same path as you have). Some rpm out there puts smbmnt in SBINDIR and
then you get this error.

The link points to BSD-smbfs info and is irrelevant to smbmount/smbmnt and
smbfs on Linux. There is nothing wrong with your syntax.

Specifying some details on your system will get you more accurate replies.
