Sorry, I was looking at a RHEL 4 box, not a RHEL 3 box.  I see now that RHEL 3 
apparently does not install cifs-vfs.

Are you saying up2date is not working?  Or are you saying that the mount is not 
working, even after you ran "up2date"?

Well, if the problem is with the smbfs.o kernel module, you may need to install 
a kernel update RPM from Red Hat and reboot.  If the problem is with the 
supporting Samba code, then you should be able to install an updated Samba RPM 
from Red Hat.
