Description of problem:
As smbfs is being phased out for cifs in 2.6/FC2, mount.cifs should be
included in the samba-client package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install samba-client
Actual Results: No /sbin/mount.cifs
Expected Results: /sbin/mount.cifs installed
You can still mount shares using "mount -t cifs", but for consistency
with /sbin/mount.* and because it's already mentioned in documents all
over the web, mount.cifs should be shipped with the Samba suite.
I've already built samba-3.0.2-3rc2 with /sbin/mount.cifs in it.
Unfortunatly, Samba 3.0.2rc2 was released after the deadline for the
test1 release, so you'll have to get it from rawhide until test2 is made.
