The FC5 kernel ditched smbfs in favor of cifs.  I'm pretty sure we
mentioned it in the release notes.  You can use "mount -t cifs ..."
to mount remote SMB filesystems using the Liunx CIFS filesystem.
Further information about the Linux CIFS filesystem can be found at

Bug reports about the Linux CIFS filesystem in Fedora 5 should go to
bugzilla.redhat.com under the "kernel" component.
