A quick SAMBA question

G'day all

I have a quick question regarding samba I was hopeing someone out there is able to help me out.

I have samba all up and working fine. My Windows computers can see my Linux computers and visa-versa. That's not a problem.

When I use Konqueror to browse my files on my system I can eaily type " smb://computername " and see all of the shared folders on that computer. However when I double click on one of those folders it takes several minutes, for the files to appear, if they appear at all.

My work around for that is to go to the konsole and use " smbmount //computername/share /mnt/samba " and it works fine. I can go back into Konqueror and go to the /mnt/samba folder and everything is there in a flash.

My question is this. Is there a way I can use the smbmount command from within the konsole to mount a computer into the /mnt/samba directory as supposed to a folder within the computer? Basically so that I can see Share-1, Share-2, Share-3, all at the same time, as supposed to mounting and unmounting each shared folder individually?

Thanks for reading. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
