No matter what I do to configure samba and/or my linux client, I get 
this error.  Can someone take a look at the particulars below and see if 
you can help me out?  Thanks

mhansen at debian01:~$ cat /etc/samba/smb.conf

# Do something sensible when Samba crashes: mail the admin a backtrace
    panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

This line is in the client machine's /etc/fstab:

I have added adminusr on the samba server via smbpasswd ....
