Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Folling the trail of thought, it seems as though cifs is not a complete replacement for the old SMB mounting so the problem I suggest is that you should be using the smbfs filesystem and not cifs. You can do this by using mount.smbfs which should then mount it. Now I am getting a corruption with the directory listing which I guess is to do with codepages, etc. If I can figure this out then maybe I can get it to work .
I am suffering with exactly the same issue. using mount.cifs I get the error 20.... and using mount.smbfs it seems to work but browsing the dir just shows rubbish. If you get any further please post your findings
