       smbmnt - helper utility for mounting SMB filesystems

       smbmnt  mount-point  [ -s <share> ]  [ -r ]  [ -u <uid> ]  [ -g <gid> ]
       [ -f <mask> ]  [ -d <mask> ]  [ -o <options> ]

       smbmnt is a helper application used by the smbmount program to  do  the
       actual  mounting of SMB shares.  smbmnt can be installed setuid root if
       you want normal users to be able to mount their SMB shares.

       A setuid smbmnt will only allow mounts  on  directories  owned  by  the
       user, and that the user has write permission on.

       The smbmnt program is normally invoked by smbmount(8)
        It should not be invoked directly by users.

       smbmount  searches the normal PATH for smbmnt. You must ensure that the
       smbmnt version in your path matches the smbmount used.

       -r     mount the filesystem read-only

       -u uid specify the uid that the files will be owned by

       -g gid specify the gid that the files will be owned by

       -f mask
              specify the octal file mask applied

       -d mask
              specify the octal directory mask applied

       -o options
              list of options that are passed as-is to smbfs, if this  command
              is run on a 2.4 or higher Linux kernel.
