smbmount and samba are different animals. when you smbmount, you use the
smbfs kernel module, which has a 2gb file size limit. You can find
patches to break the barrier at
only apply patches 01 and 02, as 00 is included in stock 2.4.21
I don't use these as they give me too many errors, but they might work
for you.
