[Samba] Question about soft mounting samba shares...

I'm backing up a bunch of Windows machines onto a linux box (FC3,  Samba
3.0.8-0.pre1.3) and it works great... UNLESS some idiot disconnects or shuts
down his computer while I'm running the backup, and then my rsync command
hangs while trying to copy the files from that computer's smbmounted drive to
the server.  Isn't there some sort of way to soft mount the samba share or
something or allow a timeout or whatever?
