Cannot mount Windows Share!!


I newly installed Suse 10.1, and I put

Code:
//MyWindowsWorkStation/sharedFolder /mnt/share smbfs auto,uid="root",username="username",password="passwd",fmask=777,dmask=777 0 0"
in /etc/fstab, however it can't mount it and promopt this error

Code:
mount: can't find /mnt/share in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
What can I do? Actually I can mount the drive with the following command:
Code:
mount -t smbfs -o uid="root",username="username",password="passwd" //MyWindowsWorkStation/sharedFolder /mnt/share/
Furthermore, how can I let the other Linux user can write files on the windows shared folder?

Thx a lot.

try this and it will ask you for your password. it is more secure
because it doesnt expose your password in your shell screen and
in the bash_history hope this helps| 3

mount -t smbfs -o username=user //MyWindowsWorkStation/sharedFolder /mnt/share/
