Samba client hangs

In my /etc/fstab file, I have two Windows Network drives mounted (using samba).


//host/STORAGE /mnt/storage smbfs username=me,password=pippy 0 0
//host/TEMP /mnt/temp smbfs username=me,password=pippy 0 0

Now the royal PITA is that 9 times out of 10, the Samba client hangs at this point in the boot.

The boot messages are:

"MOUNTING SMB FILESYSTEMS:" (and it just sits there forever)

Rebooting enough times, it will eventually get past this - but I would like to have some clue as to why this is happenning.

Red Hat 9?

It seems there is a problem with smb shares hanging in rh9

I am trying to fix an autofs problem with samba shares and, in looking around, I see that multiple mounts in fstab or even from the console will also hang - in rh9
