smb filesystem support in benh_2.4.5-pre3

Hi All,
I'm trying to mount windows 2000 shares onto my linux box and I'm
getting hung up.  I've recompiled my kernel (from benh's tree, version
2.4.5-pre3) with support for smb filesystems.  The problem is, even with
the new kernel, when I try to mount a share:

wolf:/# mount -t smb //HWServer/Documents /mnt -o username=andrew.dixon
ERROR: smbfs filesystem not supported by the kernel
Please refer to the smbmnt(8) manual page
smbmnt failed: 255

It fails and tells me that I don't have kernel support for it.  Right
after I compiled it in.

Has anyone else seen this behavior and perhaps have a fix?

Thanks for any help,
