Mounting cifs qns


smbfs is replaced by cifs and I have one problem with it.

With smbfs, I will
e.g.

Code:
mount -t smbfs -o username=hero,password=zzz //server/folder /mymount
With cifs,
e.g.

Code:
mount -t cifs -o username=hero,password=zzz //192.168.1.1/folder /mymount
Is it possible to use //server instead of using IP address?

I am able to smbclient it. But cifs does not take in //server, only IP.

Oh ya, I am using openSUSE 10.3

Code:
mount error: could not find target server. TCP name server/folder not found

No ip address specified and hostname not found
Adding to a host file maybe a good option...
But my fileserver is using DHCP. That be a problem right?
