Red Hat Linux 4.0 EMT64 file shares

I have mounted some directories, edited the fstab file, made sure that the entries are correct (done it on other machines, 32bit) and the mount -a does NOT complain, it accepts the mounts, but I am unable to see the files in the mounted directories.
What could be wrong, what should I check next?

Can you print out the /etc/fstab, and state which ones do not mount.

Can you mount them at the command line - What command line are you using to mount them?

Maybe, I also learned that the network is down.

Allow me to ask this; I also have a SuSE linux machine.  I have edited the fstab and ran mount -a.  The error that I am getting on this machine is; Connection to the network failed, SMB connection failed.

I run the mount -a on both machines, while the network is down, but on one machine I get this error and on the other I do not....why?

The problem?

I suspect that the samba shares may be local on the system that does not produce errors...in which case they'll successfully connect.

Can you also describe more in detail what you are trying to mount and what your fstab looks like?

Actually, the problem was with the physical connector on back of the server.
