I've no idea and I'm not sure I want to try.

I tried to mount a ufs filesystem under 2.0 (which it supposedly supports)
and that didn't work very well at all (was my freebsd root partition,
wd0s1a - netbsd is wd1s2a :): the command hung, so I'm not sure if it
just couldn't handle the partition/slice thing or what.

Nevertheless, this hasn't encouraged me to try mounting smbfs.
(Probably need a version of mount which I don't have and really can't
 be bothered downloading).
