i don't think that i would do it this way.
i use rsync via ssh to accomplish my backups from linux server to linux
server....very fast and easy to setup.
i mount an nt server share to one of my linux boxes using mount -t smbfs,
which uses smbmount, and use rsync "locally" to backup the nt share to one
of my linux boxes.
