Ah thankx DaZZa, thats solved one problem.

Logging into MACHO as MIKELAKE
ncpmount: Invalid argument in mount(2)

yep its the vo that causes that error about -S not being valid.
The reason for using -vo on my version is that I wanted some debugging info. 
It takes a while for the "ncpmount: Invalid..." to return so I think it
IS trying to log me in. 
As you can see it says I have something wrong with the syntax.

man ncpmount for my version says....
"-v Print  ncpfs  version  number.  It  has another meaning
(verbose) if you specify -o on command line. If you are
interested in version, type ncpmount -v without another options."

# ncpmount -v
ncpfs version

as the man page says -v gives version so maybe I'm doing something wrong
with the vo bit. I have tried -v -o and -vo but get same -S error.
How does me get the verbose?
