I'm working my through the "The Unofficial Samba HOWTO" but when I tried
this command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=fred,password=secret //"Perrin's
Documents" /mnt/smbmnt

I got this error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //'s
Documents, or too many mounted file systems

Here are the smb related lines from my kernel (2.4.20) .config file:

I don't even have the cdrom mounted so I'm discounting the possibility of
too many mounte file systems.  What incredibly simple thing am I overlooking
this time?
