This is an excellent idea.  In investigating this, however, I have
found that I can not even do the following:
mount -t smbfs -o username=skidmore,password=xxx //sheltie/linux 
execvp of smbmnt failed. Error was No such file or directory.smbmnt 
failed: 1
I can assure you that "/root/mnt/sheltie/linux" exists, and if I do the 
following with
'smbclient', I can connect.
(I can also mount '//sheltie/linux' using the GUI 'xSMBrowser')

[root at mail skidmore]# smbclient //sheltie/linux -U skidmore%xxx
added interface ip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx bcast=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 
Got a positive name query response from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ( xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx )
