I have installed Samba 2.2.1.a. From windows it works allright. From Linux I 
can browse with smb://server. But I do not have write permissions. When I 
open a console and in this console enter the command smbclient 
//server/folder I do have write permissions. Someone told me to mount samba 
with mount -t smb -o username=***,pasword=*** \\\folder 
/destination, but when I do this I get mount: fs type smb not supported by 
kernel. What do I need to do to get it working?
