Yep thanks for the tips all - It turned out that the mount command was 
to 'blame' - Using mount from the CentOS 4.1 box gave that error but 
copying the mount command from the previous 7.3 box and using that to 
mount the share worked fine.

Odd and a bit hacky but at least it works - Seems mount has changed 
somewhat and newer versions don't like talking to older server.
