Get a 2.4.19 kernel source tree and apply this patch:

Then get the samba source tree and apply the negotiation patch:

Build and install both the kernel and samba (be sure to ./configure 
--with-smbmount) and it should work, if you use smbmount as described on 
the page.

This code is semi-stable, but you should consider verifying the backups.
