Samba Made Me Mad

If you ever need to mount a Samba share of a Hungarian WinXP box, don't believe to the infos on the net. They say that you have to use

mount -t smbfs -o password=yourpassword,codepage=852,iocharset=iso8859-2 //hostname/sharename /targetdir

But they're wrong. Maybe something has changed since then, but the correct form is now to use codepage=cp852. Learn from other's mistakes and don't waste your time as they did. Seriously. It's not funny messing around with things like that.
