Especially considering Mandrake 9.2 ships with samba-3.0.0 
(parallel-installable with no pain - you an remove samba-client-2.2.8a* 
and samba3-client-3.0.0-2mdk binaries will be used for all client 
functions) and mount.cifs for both samba and samba3.

Maybe your Windows 2000 server requires signing/sealing or has been 
upgraded to 2003, in which case you should try mount.cifs (since smbclient 
in 3.0.0 suppots it, but smbfs does not, this most likely your problem). 
But, then I don't know if Fedora ships a kernel with cifs, so you'll 
likely have to compile it yourself.
