Both AIX 5.2 and 5.3 support SMB filesystems, however, there's a catch.

You have to go back to your CD's and install "bos.cifs_fs" fileset. Then go
to the IBM site and check for updates to that fileset. These filesets are
usually not installed by default (even when IBM preloads).

When installed (which requires a reboot) you'll have a "nsmb0" device to
support AIX client access to SMB shares which can be AIX Connect, Samba,
pretty much anything that talks SMB.

Use the mount command with "-v cifs" to perform the mount. The AIX man pages
are ok in describing this.
