we are using the same solution, if we change server from windows to 
samba. - the old server is mounted to the new linux box as e.g. "oldserver"
this is running fine.
seems, that u have problems with userrights (has only root access 
rights?, u need x-rights 4 browsing)
please check the accessrights of the directory and smbclient flags.
