There are still some issues with cifs (crash and burn when connecting
with NT-4)

I've stumbled into this one. From 'man mount.cifs' the option is
'user' (instead of username)

Well NT4 is still SMB - so cifs doesn't work with it.

BTW: I've successfully used the following (with a WinXP share)

mount.cifs //xp-machine/c$ /mnt/dir -o user=uid,domain=dmn
