Description of problem:
When I try to map a drive via samba it tells me the kernel does not
support smbfs as mount points.

I have a SAN that needs to be able to mappable via a linux or windows

Without this feature I will cease to use Fedora in the future.

Perhaps it will be included in the final release of Fedora Core 2?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  mount -t smbfs -o username=$user,password=$pass //SAN/gigaspace

Actual Results:  I recieved an error stating that the kernel does not
support smbfs as mountpoints

Expected Results:  I expected to be able to map to my SAN like I was
able to in Fedora Core 1.

could you try using cifs instead of smbfs ?
