Using CIFS cured the problem, thanks for the help.

wrong. SMBFS can't(kernel space) but CIFS (patches or 2.6 kernel) or
smbclient (which is part of the samba package) can. Use smbclient
instead, or patch your kernel to use cifs. Anyway, if the hosts are two
*nix machines, you'd be better off using nfs in my opinion
