2) Samba mounts no-longer worked (reported the error "smbfs not supported by kernel")

Solution to number two:
* Change directory to your linux source (for me this was /usr/src/linux-2.6.2-1.79/)
* run "make menuconfig" and locate the samba file system in the menus, turn it into a module
* recompile the kernel
* copy smbfs.ko from <linux source>/fs/smbfs/ to <linux modules>/kernel/fs/smbfs/ (for my linux modules was /lib/modules/2.6.1-1.65)
* modprobe smbfs


outsch ;-)

with  >=samba*-3.0.2-5  from rawhide
and  'mount  -t cifs'  instead  '-t smb'  it should be ok.
only a few minutes without compiling a new kernel.
