 The opinions that I have seen on this list before is that smbmount is
 deprecated.  linux.cifs should be used instead, and for that people
 should go here and subscribe:  
 The other thing that I have seen is that because smbmount is kernel
 related users should go to the kernel lists, or something like that. 
 Did I get that all wrong?  Am I just shooting my mouth off again?
