That is strange. I don't have the SMB server running on my PS3 and I 
have no problem using the cifs to mount shares. It may be based on the 
version as well, but I don't know. My primary share system is a Samba 
PDC, so mounting from that isn't a problem, so I have a music folder at 
/var/media/music and have it shared in the Windows world as /music and I 
can mount that in both linux and windows using SMB.

On the other side of things, my secondary server that doesn't have Samba 
configured or running can mount both that share, and /windowsbox/c$ 
among other share.
