Up2date does not work it does not update at all and it throws some
error. I tried downloading and installing Samba ver 3.0.23b from source.
I do not find the smbmount file in the samba/bin nor samba/sbin folders.
I can only see the older version ver 3.0.0 in /usr/bin is available
hence I am not able to get the latest version of the samba mount the
Any idea why I cannot find the smbmount from the latest samba version.
and is there any chance that I would be get this for the latest version
of samba and hence have this work.

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

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

Well, if the problem is with the smbfs.o kernel module, you may need to
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
from Red Hat.
