Mount Windows Share with Fedora 12

The file system type for the mount command has been changed from smbfs to cifs. So using “-t smbfs” will not work any more. Instead you need to enter something like this:

mount -t cifs -o username=user[,uid=500,gid=500] //machine/share[/path] /mountpoint

There seems to be a documentation bug in the man pages, because they still mention smbfs.
