it's ok...i found out what i was doing wrong.....and it doesn't make a hell
of a lot of sence realy.

i was typing something like....

smbmount "\\server\share" <passwd> -c 'mount /mnt' -U username -I
ip.ip.ip.ip

but when i typed the following it worked.....

smbmount "\\\server\share" <passwd> -c 'mount /mnt' -U username -I
ip.ip.ip.ip

strange...
