Depending on the versions of mount, and smbmount, you want something
mount -t smbfs -o username=joe_blo,password=secret
it you want to use the "\", you want \\\\10.4.22.38\\downloads (ie.
escape each "\").
ps. mount version 2.10f, smbmount version 2.0.7. Previous versions have
different syntax. And don't forget smbfs support in the kernel.
