Mounting Windows Shares


I am at a friends house trying to mount several windows shares from his lan onto the linux box he uses as a firewall and gateway to the internet. I am using the command:

mount -t smbfs //<hostname>/<sharename> /<mountpoint>

but it keeps returning the error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.1.7/mzk, or too many mounted file systems

I have tried using the machines hostname and it's IP address in the hostname part but i keep getting the same error. I have added the windows machines to /etc/hosts and i can ping the hostnames fine.

The box I am trying to install on is a ClarkConnect box, which is a specially configured RedHat distro.

Are there any settings in config files anywhere that I am not aware of that this special distro may have made that could be causing me this problem?

Thanks.
