smbfs and smbmount and Paul's 2.2.1 kernel

In order to prove the Linuxppc port of the JDK is correct I need to mount NT
filesystems on my LinuxPPC system using smbmount and smbumount which are part of
the smbfs rpm (Sun's JDK on an NT box provides a reference system to run the JCK

To make smbfs work (I grabbed the src rpm and built it) I need to compile SMB
_FS into the kernel.  I grabbed Paul's latest kernel source and dot.config file
and noticed there was no support for SMB included in his kernel by default.

Before I go and roll my own, has anyone played with mounting NT filesystems
using smbmount and smbumount commands?  Is this stable on linuxppc?  Are there
any gotchas I should look out for with this filesystem?
