OK, additional info.  Running smbclient -L mandor (mandor is the name of
the file server) from the Mandrake machine shows three file shares, one
of which is the one I'm trying to access.  Running the same command from
the Debian machine shows Mandor as a server but doesn't show any of the
file shares.
