Thanks so much for your help Glen! It worked perfectly!
I must share this to show the power of google though. When I read your
message, my brain read your command as 'submount' which of course will not
work. I tried everything I could think of to no avail. I was about to respond
to your message that it didn't work and decided to try google first. I type
the following command line into Konqueror;
gg: submount smbfs Debian
The response contained this;
Did you mean: smbmount smbfs Debian
I knew instantly what I had done and was blown away that google replied
with "smbmount"! After substituting smbmount every was worked fine.
Again, thanks for the help,
