So I've got a mixed network of Win98 and Win XP machines. A backup
script runs on the server to pull incremental backups from them. It
seems to have a lot of trouble with the Win XP machine; I get things
like this in my process list a lot:

 /bin/mount -t smbfs //monster/C/PSOC_SPI/CYNTHIA_C/SharedDocs/D/SharedDocs/C/Monster98/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/D/C/ADMIN/D/C/C/C/D/D /smb/monster/C/PSOC_SPI/CYNTHIA_C/SharedDocs/D/SharedDocs/C/Monster98/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/C/D/C/ADMIN/D/C/C/C/D/D

The machine is exporting a C and D drive...

Anyone seen this kind of thing before?

cheers, Rich.
