Space is up front, first character, and I'm not permitted to change it

These are my current versions. I don't know how to check the version of
smbfs, but though it was part of the samba package.

# uname -a
Linux mcitylinux 2.4.20-8smp #1 SMP Thu Mar 13 17:45:54 EST 2003 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

# smbd -V
Version 2.2.7a

it's me again.
Sorry, but i wasn't able to reproduce your other problem.
I just changed the machine name of my server to contain
a hyphen and changed my fstab accordingly resulting
in absolutely no problems.
Always be sure to use the latest version of smbfs (comes with
the kernel - mine is 2.2.5-SuSE)
