> I just came to try to make an SMB mount (looking to copy my girlfriend's files over from her I-hope-soon-to-be-old Windows machine) and in response to my attempt to do mount -t smbfs... I get prompted for a password for the remote machine (currently blank) and then the system responds with:
> ERROR: smbfs filesystem not supported by the kernel
> Please refer to the smbmnt(8) manual page
> smbmnt failed: 255

Use "cifs" instead, which has replaced smbfs.

Ciao, Marcus

That solved it. Thanks :)
