Cant seem to mount a windows share to my slack 9 machine...have compiled the smbfs support in the kernel both as kernel and modules and still no luck...error message as follows

Mount : wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //computer/share or too many mounted file systems

im using:

mount -t smbfs -o username=user,passsword=pass //computer/share /mnt/smbfs

Try this

mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=pass,workgroup=workgroup //pooter/dir /mnt/pooter

Sometimes if you are trying to mount an NT base share it wants to know what workgroup you are from.


mount -t smbfs //pooter/dir /mnt/pooter

Sometimes if you are trying to mount a 9x or XP Home (not pro) it doesn't care what the username is as long as you have the right password.

Try using smbmount // /path/to/mount/point

it might ask for the password if there is one on the share.... if there is no password just hit enter.
