Dear sirs!
I kindly ask you to help me with the following problem.
I need to mount MS DFS tree Linux filesystem.
I have:
Linux Slackware 9.0.
Kernel 2.4.21 compiling with support SMB file system.
Samba 2.2.8a compiling with --with-msdfs
In order to mount I type:
mount -t smbfs -o 
username=name,password=***,workgroup=work //server/DfsRoot/mnt/DfsTree
cd /mnt/DfsTree
In the DfsTree directory I see folders, but they are empty.
The same happens to XSMBrowser program.
Tell me please if Samba can mount MS DFS tree.
If it doesn't, do you plan to add this feature in the future version?
If it does, what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you,
sincerely yours,
Dmitry Ponomarev,
Moscow, Russia
