I suspect that without more, it's not possible. I've never figured out any
way for my G4/10.4 to connect to OS/2, only see that the OS/2 server is
present on the LAN. I've not tried very hard. Possibly the same cifs
parameters required on Linux (sec=lanman,servern=$SERVERNAME,port=###) might
be applied on 10.6 using a cmdline attempt to mount known OS/2 shares.
Putting Samba server on OS/2 should work. I've avoided needing to do that by
putting any OS/2 files my Mac needs on a Linux server.
