CIFS mount does not work as documented

The documentation for System Rescue CD found at ... _with_CIFS does not work.

The lfs (large file support) option, which the documentation says not to forget, is not found on the man page (mount.cifs) on my Version 3.8.1 CD. Furthermore, using it produces an error. I also get errors when I place the options after rather than before the device and directory attributes. On my NAS which is setup without username/password security I found the following will work:

mount -t cifs -o guest //192.168.0.n/directory /mnt/windows
