Unhappy Can't remove Samba mountpoint


I created a Samba mountpoiunt thru the MCC, but noticed that I could not write to the Windows XP share and, also, this mountpoint hangs when I am booting up Mandrake 10.1 Official.

I want to get rid off it, but I can't. MCC will not complete the unmount even though I notice it's no longer listed as mounted.

It shows up on my desktop as a "Remote Share."

Any help appreciated.

I re-mounted it again, and then unmounted it by unchecking the checkboxes that were checked when it was mounted (this removed it from the desktop. I then edited fstab (I removed the entry). Finally, I deleted the directory created for it in /mnt/

Seems to work as it no longer appears when I boot.
