an update. it now seems that using mount -t smbfs -o username=XXXXX,password=XXXXXX //hyacinth/mp3s /pub/mp3 only works once as when i umount the share or try and mount any other drive from that pc it just hangs.
i can mount most drives once but after that cannot mount them again until the machine is rebooted.
any ideas, anyone??

Subject: problem after upgrading redhat 9
so i just upgraded an ftp server to redhat 9 with several of my win2k drives mounted in fstab. all worked fine before but now when it comes on smb starting it just hangs. some directories i can mount via
mount -t smbfs -o username=XXXXX,password=XXXXXX //hyacinth/mp3s /pub/mp3
but some it jsut hangs. i have taken the entries out of fstab that will not mount via command line but it still hangs. why should these directories not mount anyways? the only thing i can think of is that the directory has 37.7 gigs. is there a limit on how much space can be mounted? i have included my fstab below. the only way i can get the machine to boot is by unplugging the network cable, else i get:
Jun 10 10:42:56 amnesiac mount: 602: session request to 192.168.1.201 failed (Called name not present)
Jun 10 10:42:56 amnesiac mount: 602: session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
a bunch of times in my boot.log and it jsut hangs as i said. someone said i should change the ip addresses in fstab to the hostname (hyacinth) and add a line to /etc/hosts defining hyacinth so i did this but it did not help.
any help apreciated. i had other entries in there as well (ie the big drive is not in there right now).
