The problem Felix has is he's using a bundled binary version of MC

compiled with Samba support. If he compiles it from source, he'll lose
SuSE's nice UTF-8 patch and it'll become unusable, as SuSE's locale
(on the other hand, rather fortunately) uses UTF-8 encoding.
Please, calm down. I suggested to Felix to build MC from the Suse
source RPM (SRPM) for MC. I haven't verified, but I am pretty
confident that the SRPM includes all patches that Suse uses to
build the binary RPM package.

"--with-samba" is an option to the "configure" script which is run as
part of the build process. This option enables samba support in the
resulting binary.

To verify whether the Suse MC package supports samba, invoke samba like
this:
   mc -V

Then look at the output. There should be a line "Virtual File System:" -
if it contains smbfs then your MC has samba support built in. If it
doesn't, you can get the source RPM package and change the .spec file
to include the --with-samba configure option and then rebuild the MC
package.

Yes, it is direct support. It doesn't depend on the kernel or external
libraries.
