What's the command you are using to mount it?

nmbd just handles the NetBIOS over IP service.  All of the CIFS related 
stuff is handled by smbd so I don't *think* this has anything to do 
with the problem (somebody please correct me if I'm wrong).  What shows 
up in the smb.log file (usually /var/log/samba/smb.log or 
/var/log/smb.log...or maybe on Solaris /var/adm/log/something...)?
