[Samba] samba4 installation Error and mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'

Wed Sep 5 12:37:53 MDT 2012
Environment: Ubuntu 12.04
1) mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'
With default Samba 2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.3 installed, all the following 3
$ sudo mount -t *smbfs* -o username=MYNAME,password=MYPWD
mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'
/media$ sudo mount -t *cifs* -o
username=MYNAME,password=MYPWD //mybooklive/myfolder/ /media/smb/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //mybooklive/myfolder/,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
$ sudo smbmount //192.168.1.82/myfolder/ /media/smb/ -o user=MYNAME
sudo: smbmount: command not found
2) I have no idea whether 1) has something to do with samba version? So, i
decided to replace current samba 2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.3 with samba4 .
However, I met exactly the same issue as described here,
> samba.provision.InvalidNetbiosName: The name ''AJIT-EXTENSA-4630Z'' is not
> valid NetBIOS name
> "smb.conf" generated by s4

doesn't work for me at all. It seems I have to downgrade to
samba 2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.3, in order to remove this* not a valid NetBIOS name*
Did anybody really solve this problem???
