this would be due to a combination of your smf template (i.e. a minimum or fixed width) and the width of your mambo main section. You'll have to adjust one or both to sit correctly (I recommend a variable width smf template and a wide main section)
The default SMF theme is actually variable width (to a limit on the amount it can shrink) however it sounds like your mambo template is very narrow
