[localhost cifs]# mount -v -t cifs  // /tmp/tory -o user=user

Password:  parsing options: rw,user=tblue

mount.cifs kernel mount options
mount error 22 = Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

What is with mount.cifs making the unc path //x.x.x.x\???  <<--- should be /

Kernel Redhat 2.4.21-20
CIFS version both 1.02b and 1.20b (whatever the latest).

Mount cifs from samba 3.0 (since the samba CVS links are busted).

Any help with this
