[Samba] Unable to mount Windows 2003 Server shares from Linux RH 7.3

I am trying, FROM a Linux Red Hat 7.3, to mount a share sitting on a
Windows 2003 Server and I am getting the following problems.
I had done this with a NT4 server and it was working fine.
I am trying to mount the following: 
mount.smbfs //NT2003SERVER/share /mnt -o username=user,password=pass
At first, I was getting the following error:
cli_negprot: SMB signing is mandatory and we have disabled it.
21739: protocol negotiation failed
SMB connection failed

I then added the following line to smb.conf
client signing = Yes
I reloaded and tried again I this time the share mounted but everytime I
would do an ls in it it would give me the following error: 
First I would get this at the console: 
SMB signature check failed!
SMB Signature verification failed on incoming packet!

Then while trying to do an ls command in the mounted dir:
ls: .: Stale NFS file handle

Can anyone help me with that? Or tell what I must do to successfully
access Windows 2003 shares.
Thank you
