I did a df -k on a box and the command hung.

Called the SA and very quickly learned that it was a hung samba mount.

How did he determine that so quick ( what was the command ? )

Issue "df" and note the last filesystem dispayed before the hang.
Now issue "mount".
The filesystem displayed just following the one you noted is most probably the culprit.

... or issue "mount" and then "df /mount/point" one by one against all displayed mountpoints.
You will immediately see where it hangs.

df hungs when samba (or) nfs mountpoints are having problem. Try to cd to the filesystem that are mounted via samba (or) NFS if u cannot that implies filesystem is hung. Its better to open a new remote session as a backup because even cd hungs when you try to a hung filesystem. using mount -a u can try to remount the filesystem if else the entry to mount the filesystem is present under /etc/fstab if not try to check the status to services on SAMBA Server if all looks good on server side, mount the filesystem manually using following command
mount -t smbfs //server1/sharefilesystem /destinationfilesystem

To automount using fstab everytime when system boots use following procedure in the link
