Samba is the name of the server that is used to export *nix resources 
using the CIFS protocol.

"mounted over samba" means nothing too.

In understand you have a *nix machine that mounts ressources of another 
*nix machine, exported there by Samba.

So, this is done on the *nix machine that mounts the resource, right?

So, this is a CIFS mount..:-)
