Problem with mounting network drive in Kubuntu Feisty

There was time when suddenly I couldn’t mount my network drive again. Today I searched and found out that I need to use cifs instead of smbfs. This is the command I use, first install smbfs using

sudo apt-get install smbfs

and then add the line to /etc/fstab for read-write windows network drive:

//filesvr/CEP   /media/Qdrive   cifs    credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,dmask=777,fmask=777   0       0
