While trying to figure out which I was using, I ran into this article
that suggests that CIFS has replaced SMBFS by default in Ubuntu since
Hardy, so I guess I am using CIFS:


I'm doing a 380 gig rsync backup to a completely blank drive right now
so I can't verify this (or rather, I'd prefer not to mount a new
filesystem while this is going on).

Cheerful regards,.
