I think the module support for smbfs.o must be enabled in the kernel so
that the kernel will automatically load the module when necessary.

All xfsamba does is fork to exec smbmount. So if that command line
works, xfsamba should also. Of course, xfsamba also creates mount points
in /tmp and removes them on closing the xftree window, so you need write
access to these points.
