Hi Roger,

Bear in mind that smbfs is actually part of the kernel, it is not part
of the Samba project. Perhaps you could try using smbclient to test it
first, eg.

smbclient //oldpc/tmp -U root

This assumes that root has already been set up as a Samba user on oldpc
using smbpasswd.


PS could you please use a few more line breaks in your emails? It makes
it much easier to read. Thanks.
