I did a base install of AIX 6.1 which was painful since I'm very new to AIX.

here is my question..

I know you can mount a windows share on a AIX 6.1. I have read using the 'loopmount' command you can mount a ISO image. This is what I need to do. Can I use the loopmount command to mapped to a network location of the ISO image?

Also how do I know if cifs is install on my AIX server

when i type in smit cifs_fs: I get the follow error:
"1800-007 - There is current not SMIT"
