These (mount -t smbfs and smbclient) are completely different programs
running. Using a mount is a kernel module and smbclient is the samba
1. Make sure you've got a new(ish) kernel. Read the changelogs to see
if you're missing anything in new versions.
2. Try using the cifs mount instead. Personally I've never tried it,
but it is a common solution given 'round these parts for probmes with
smbfs kernel operations.
