you need to be supplying the samba password for root for the machine
//linux2, not the root accounts password on //linux1 or //linux2.  If
you've never added root to the smbpasswd file on //linux2, you'll need

You also might want to look at nfs for this instead.  It's generally a
better tool for unix to unix file mounting situations than samba.

That being said I'm somewhat lazy and tend to mount shares from a
freebsd samba server on my linux box, rather than learn how to set up
