i checked the FAQ and newsgroup archives, maybe i missed this, but. is there
a way to to mount an smbfs so that if the remote machine goes down or
offline, the local machine does not hang processs waiting for it to return?

for NFS it would be:

    mount -t nfs -o hard,intr

but i do not see any equivalent for smbfs. for example, smb4k hangs hard
when the remote machine get turned off and smb4k had mounted windows
