Connecting to Solaris Servers from Fedora Core 2

Hi All,
I am trying to connect to our Solaris servers from my linux machine and need help in gettting there. Let me explain to what I got here.

We have a solaris server where our appilcation servers are ported. I have a login access to it and when I login in I am logged to my home directory there.

I recently got a laptop, installed fedora core 2 on it (its a dual boot with Win XP). In Windows environment I connect to our Solaris servers by mapping network drive \\server\username using samba.

All my scripts are in //server/username. I would like to connect to this folder from linux just like the way I do it in Windows (we use samba) and would like to automate it such that when I login to Linux I would like a folder mapped to my server\username. Currently I can telnet to server and login from linux. But my work would be easier if I can mount it.

Hope I am clear with my request. Please help me out with this.

I tried mounting using this
mount -t smbfs //server/user /mnt/mntpoint

It prompts me for Password and when I enter it this is the error I get
13230: session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)
SMB connection failed
