Fedora Core 5 - Mounting smbfs in fstab


Have they removed the option to mount something via fstab using the smbfs file system?

In FC4 I was able to add this to my fstab:

Code:
/Windows/Share /media/Windows smbfs user, username=bob, UID=500, GID=500, 0 0
And was able to have it automatically mount my SMB share at bootime. Have they removed this in FD5 because all I get is this error when trying to mount -a after editing the fstab:

Code:
mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'

Can use cifs right in the fstab in place of the older smbfs as a file system?

Also, why can I no longer select custom icons for my custom launchers? They are always grayed out unless they are in the usr/share/pix folder.

Yes. You might also want to review the release notes for udev, and then change your /etc/udev.d files to simplify your /etc/fstab entries.
