Document: How to set up shares to configure for C/C++ Indexing in Mac OS

Detailed description
In Windows, you can mount shares like this:
net use s: \\target.address\scratchbox
or in Windows Explorer - Tools - Map Network Drive.

But howto mount those shares in Mac OS?

In Mac Finder - Go - Connect to Server
Server Address: smb://
Name: maemo
Password: maemo
and you get:
Sorry, you entered an invalid username or password.

In Terminal
sudo mount -t smb smb://maemo:maemo@ /Volumes/maemo
also fails.

How to change Samba passwords encrypt to true for Mac OS X should
be documented.

Apparently, "sudo" isn't required.  I'm able to do
this mounting with:

mount -t smbfs //maemo@<addr>/scratchbox /tmp/scratchbox

for instance.

Also, ESbox supports OS X natively now, so these instructions
are less important.

I figured out how to do this.  At least, I got it working...
now to remember all the steps!

I still haven't figured out what's going on.  

The expected methods are  Find > Connect to Server as mentioned
above, or "sudo mount_smbfs //user:pass@server/share

But neither works.  Neither guest nor maemo access succeeds.
There is nothing useful reported in the logs.

The error is always something about authentication.  Usually
the fix for this is changing /etc/samba/smb.conf (disabling various
password encoding things or changing the share permissions, etc.)
then "killall -HUP smbd", but nothing seems to make
a difference.

I think the Finder method looks correct, but there may be some
kind of authentication issues or password encryption going on.
I need to remember why... hmm... did you check the
/var/log/{smbd.log|nmbd.log} files on the VM side for clues?

As for a manual command, typically you'd use smbmount and the
syntax is different:

sudo smbmount // /Volumes/maemo -o

(note: no "smb://" here)
