In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5

systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
I'm able to mount Win2k3 shares with CIFS using F8, so closing this with a
resolution of CURRENTRELEASE - F8. Please reopen if you're still having this
Of course after 1 year the problem has been fixed and it works good on later
releases of the kernel / fedora releases :) lol
Great! Thanks for verifying it.
