Thanks, Marcus.

Switching to cifs solved the problem.

Also noticed a typo in my original post should be /etc/init.d/boot.local not /etc/boot.local for the video issue.  I'll keep plugging away at the 945gm issue and will post the solution once I find it.

no clue.

use the cifs filesystem, it has superceded the smbfs fs.
