mount error with CIFS


Ok, so ive been trying to mount a CIFS share from a WinXP box that i have with all my music, and used teh mount command like so
Code:
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=kids,password=[password] //192.168.254.5/MUSICA/ /home/sylak/netmusicdeadbabies
and get the following error returned
Code:
mount: //192.168.254.5/MUSICA/ is not a valid block device
And, after searchign ia google, ive still not found a good answer to what this is and how to fix it.

i would guess that the end / is wrong. the share name itself does not have a slash, so the error message is correct.
