Question mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

Hi ,
I have a filesystem on AIX 4.3.3 which i need to share with other clients who use Windows NT and Redhat linux 7.3.
I use samba to share this with Windows NT Clients.
Now i was to share this with Linux clients.
When i try to nfs mount this on Linux i get
"mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied"
I have gone thru and tried out solutions given in many documents found on the Internet but it did not help.
I am however able to mount this filesystem on a differnet AIX machine.

I am able to share this file system on Linux with
mount -t smbfs -o username=<>,passwd=<> <source> <destination>
But the problem is that ,once i reboot this machine, this mount point is not visible, and only root can mount this filesystem.

I guess there must be a lot of people here who have been working on UNIX for some time now..

Any help will be appreciated..

Thanks in advance..

You can only mount a Samba share on linux systems. The linux kernel can have smbfs either compiled in, or as a loadable module.

This cannot be done on AIX - you can use samba, but you just can't mount a directory to a drive.
