- How-To smbfs: smbmnt must be installed suid root
Okay, so I was trying to mount SAMBA shares so all the programs could see them. Sounds simply it's so not! So when I finally found a program that could find the shares. They wouldn't mount. You have to follow this guys code. see note.

Note: for the problem: "smbmnt must be installed suid root for direct user mounts" type in a console to resolve this: $ sudo chmod u+s `which smbmnt` in order to be able to mount the shared directory , and: $ sudo chmod u+s `which smbumount` in order to be able to umount the shared directory.
smbmnt from all users
