Mounting Windows Shares


having a problem mounting windows network shares on my RedHat9 box.

i'd like to get them mounted in fstab. i added these lines in there.

//bean/anime /storage/anime smbfs username=thermos,password=***** 0 0
//ender/apps /storage/apps smbfs username=thermos,password=***** 0 0
//ender/apps.iso /storage/apps.iso smbfs username=thermos,password=***** 0 0
//ender/books /storage/books smbfs username=thermos,password=***** 0 0
etc....(about 6 more shares)

i run mount -a and it sits there thinking. after about 5 mins i killed it and checked the mounts. it mounted the 1st 2 but nothing else.

so i took out the 1st 2 shares lines and tried it again. let it run for about a min and cancelled it again. it only mounted the 1st share this time (apps.iso)

i then tried mounting by hand using....
mount -t smbfs //ender/apps /storage/apps -o username=thermos,password=*****

and it did the same thing. it ran and just sat there. i let it sit for a couple mins and canceled it again. i then checked the share and it seemed to mount it fine.

anybody know why this is locking up and not moving on properly?
thnx in adv.

somethings wrong in rh9 sadly, cause i had setup sh scripts to mount, copy and dismount.

After about the 2nd or 3rd one, the smb client just locked up, and i had over 100 processes in about 2 days.

I think RH needs to send out a client patch.

well crap. that blows. i was wondering if that might be the case. i had read on here a lot of redhat9 problems in this area.

well i just installed this os a few days ago. i guess i can reinstall something else. maybe ill give mandrake a shot.
