I am relatively inactive on this list.  I am trying to mount samba on an 
lfs-based machine.  I am experiencing difficulties.  The machine has lfs 
(kernel2.6.11.5 installed.  There is kernel support for  smbfs.   The machine 
does not have samba installed nor smbclient.  (This is because it is intended 
as a gageway machine) and the present exercise in mounting samba from an 
external server is  for  network-setup verification.

The  external  samba server mentioned has two shares;  a public share that 
requires no password and  a normal share that requires authentication.  I am 
experiencing difficulty mounting either.  I have tried various options after 
the -o tag.   Examples of my efforts are in the attached file.  Help would be 

Yours sincerely
