Thanks for the reply.  I'm setting up the NT box with WINS but will have to wait until after business hours to reboot it.  The NT and WINS servers (one of my Samba servers) are on different networks.

Will let everyone know the results.

The IP number should be of the machine you want to mount from, in this
case the NT box. You shouldn't have to, but you may need to specify the
netbios name of the NT box and give the ip number as a separate option.

smbmount //ntname/manage /mnt/Man -o ip=

This of course assumes that you have network connectivity from the linux
box to the NT box.

Other potentially useful options are the workgroup option, the uid/gid and
fmask/dmask options. Check the smbmount manpage.
