Is there support availablefor mounting SMB filesystems in Debian for Raspberry Pi? I would like to access my NAS files stored elsewhere on my Pi. I haven't found anything obvious to me through Aptitude. Thanks.

There is built-in support for the Pi accessing file systems elsewhere using SMB, but not for it being accessed via SMB. If you want to go the other way you have to install samba (do not forget the samba-common package is needed as well).

smbfs has been replaced by cifs, IIRC you need the package cifs-utils.
