Mapping network drives under FC5

Last week my work laptop hard drive died.  When they put in a new hard drive on it, they
loaded FC5 instead of FC4 (which I had on before).  I don't mind, but I'm kinda upset
that nothing that didn't work before has been fixed (I can't suspend/wakeup the laptop. 
I have to carry it to meetings running, which is how the hard drive crashed the first
time.  And because FC5 is still OSS only, the wireless won't work until I spend half a
day installing and configuring the IPW2200 stuff.)

One thing I'm having trouble with is mounting the network drives.  FC5 mounts them as
cifs instead of smbfs.  I can mount them as root, but not as a mortal user ("david"),
and if I mount it as root, it's not writable by the user david.

Here's the line from /etc/fstab:

//nas-ma/dkramer        /mnt/nasdk              cifs
  user,credentials=/etc/fstab.credentials,uid=500,gid=100,domain=APTIMANETWORK,rw   0 0

When I mount as root:
root at localhost]# mount /mnt/nasdk
[root at localhost]# l -d /mnt/nasdk
drwxrwxr-x 10 784 6238 0 Oct  2 12:56 /mnt/nasdk
(I don't know where the 784 and 6238 are coming from)

When I mount as david:
[david at localhost]$ mount /mnt/nasdk
mount error 1 = Operation not permitted
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page ( mount.cifs)

Oh, and /etc/fstab.credentials:
[david at localhost]$ l /etc/fstab.credentials
-rwxrwx--- 1 david root 36 Oct  2 13:25 /etc/fstab.credentials

So what am I doing wrong?
