Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Out of curiosity I just installed Vector Light 7 into a VM and discovered that /sbin/mount.cifs does exist, but it is only a symlink to /usr/sbin/mount.cifs, which doesn't exist. So it seems to me that Vector Light is broken.
A web search has revealed nothing about this, which I find rather surprising. For many people mount.cifs is essential, I wonder how it can be unnoticed that this is broken, especially when one keeps in mind that the beta phase of Vector was not really short.
Anyways, I copied over mount.cifs from a machine with Slackware 13.37 and now it works. May at least be a workaround for you also, if needed drop me a message and I can send you mount.cifs per mail.
