Question Trying to mount W2k3 shareusing Samba 3.0.14a-Debian gives Stale NFS file handle

Greetings !

I am have much difficulty trying to access the data on mounted shares on a Windows 2003 server. I can succussfully mount a share using the command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=SANTIAGOCONSULT\administrator,password=password //greyboxserver/data2 /mnt/w2k3/

But, if i try to when I cd /mnt/w2k3 and do an 'ls' i get an error

ls: .: Stale NFS file handle

Also if i do a 'ls -l' in /mnt it comes back saying
silverbox:/mnt# ls -l
ls: w2k3: Permission denied

I have done this as root and went so far as chmoding 777 everything in /mnt
(When /mnt/w2k3 is not mounted this does not occur)

I also verfied the permissions server, I havefull access (as you can see from the mount command above i am doing this with the admin account)

Iam not sure what this has to do with NFS since im not even running it. I can post my smb.conf if needed

I have enabled the guest account on the Windows 2003 server and also disabled both options one the server for "Digitally Signed Communicatons" as suggested on some other posts.

This is on Debian Unstable, Samba 3.0.14a-Debian and the server is Windows 2003 SP1
I can mount samba shares no problem on a Slackware server on the same network

Any Ideas Guys ???
