RedHat AS/2.1 mount Windows DFS

Does anybody know how/if you can mount a Windows DFS point in RedHat AS/2.1? I have a DFS setup on my Windows network, and I'm replicating a folder on two servers. It's setup in DFS as \\DNAME\DFS\test1. This folder test1 is a shared folder on two different servers that are replicating, so that if one server goes down the DFS will still be able to server the files. So what i need to do is to mount the DFS point. Somthing like:

mount -t smbfs -o username=root,password=link1 //dname/DFS/test1 /test1

But this does not work? Any help would be welcome.

I know that Samba 3 (shipped with AS 3) supports DFS, but AS 2.1 probably uses an older version.
