CIFS/SMB mount problem on Debian

// /mnt/sharemount cifs rw,noexec,nosuid,password=,username=someusername,nodev
in my /etc/fstab for mounting a CIFS network share.

Problem When trying to mount (with mount command)
Command lines output:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //,

missing codepage or helper program, or other error

(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might

need a /sbin/mount. helper program)

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try

dmesg | tail or so

dmesg output:
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

Reason:Seems like its missing the mount.cifs script/binary or somethine else that comes with the smbfs package.

aptitude install smbfs

This installs mount.cifs and probably more. It resolved it in my case.

you should just need
apt-get install cifs-utils
