Hi Luis,
Although I don't use it, I've seen numerous posts about smbfs
filesystems not being supported anymore, and there are no more
code fixes for it.

Have you tried the replacement filesystem cifs?  My understanding
is cifs accomplishes the same goals and is supported in the
kernel.  See the command mount.cifs in the doco.

Regards, Doug
