Don’t Use mount in the Destination Directory

After rebooting this morning, I went to re-establish the link between Fedora 8 and Mac OS X 10.5.5.  I went to the mount point, /mnt/macshare, and issued the mount command: mount -o username=sambauser // /mnt/macshare   

After entering the password I issued an ls -l and saw nothing - no files.  After checking permissions, capitalization, and the Samba setup on the Mac, I decided to blindly cd to a directory in the share I knew existed and issued ls -l and it worked!  I returned to the parent directory with .. and issued ls -l and all my files were there.

Also, anyone know why the -o option username isn’t in the man page for mount?
