Voodoo Magic

On the third install, I ran into problems mounting the samba share. I had done everything exactly as before, so I was miffed. I was getting the error:

  mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //8track/NED,
         or too many mounted file systems

In the end, I realized I didn't have smbclient, which is in the smbfs package. Again with the voodoo -- I just did a

apt-get update
apt-get install -reinstall smbfs

and all was well. Weird.
