Well, I wanted to give "cifs" a try but it looks like it is not turned on 
in the current kernel. Therefore, I will have to see about recompiling the 
kernel with "cifs" support.

smbfs is generally deprecated in favor of cifs.  Try "mount -t cifs" 

I'm certain that you've already checked this, but just to make sure,
I'm assuming that you checked the Linux permissions on the mounted
filesystem to make sure that you have read access as far as Linux is
concerned?  mount.cifs supports uid, gid, file_mode, and dir_mode
options to use different Linux permissions on mounted filesystems.
