in fact

dfs links work with version 3.0.23d.

but in fact I was testing with a DFS stand alone namespace (that's 
what MS calls it). This is not a DFS link. And this does not work. 
However I can access the namespace with my XP client.

so I have \\server\dfsnamespace\dfslink.

I can access the dfslink with smbclient but not the namespace. If I 
use the Windows Explorer in XP I can access both.
