  Author  Subject: Unable to Mount SMBFS

I'm unable to mount a Windows share using Samba on Debian Potato 2.4.18.

If I do a

mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator //windowsbox/c /mnt/windowsboxc/

as root I get back:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //windowsbox/c,
or too many mounted file systems

My smbfs module is loaded. An lsmod shows:

Module Size Used by
smbfs 31660 0

Besides proc and devpts, I've only got 3 filesystems mounted.

I *can* do a smbclient and connect to the share, oddly enough. I've tried
apt-get removing/installing samba and sambacommon, but that did no good.

Any ideas? I've never had a problem like this.
