Question accessing_windows_or_samba_shares_using_autofs

Re: http://www.howtoforge.com/accessing_...s_using_autofs

Followed the howto and seem to be having a strange problem, just installed 8.10 today and am pretty much a newbe to linux so suggest anything no matter how simple

I can 'smbclient \\SERVER -U username' and connect to the share no problem so i assume all is generally good and if I 'ls -als /cifs/SERVER/' the ls works and I see $ADMIN $C $D but now the fun begins...

This can be seen best by browsing via GUI to the /cifs/SERVER/ folder, I can see the 3 shares; then 1 disappears, then 2 disappear, then the last changes to a file icon instead of a folder and then all 3 folders appear again and the process repeats. I cant access any of the folders because if I try I'm told the location dosent exist.

If anyone can shed some light that would be great, TIA.
