It means that you haven't created a directory named "o" in /mnt directory.
first create a directory where you want to mount the network share for eg
Code:
mkdir /mnt/o
Then mount the network share
Code:
mount -t smbfs //192.168.0.1/share /mnt/o -o "username=shareuser,password=pass"

You have to put the drive in the etc/fstab file so the drive will mount on startup. I'm looking for a good resource on adding this because I'm horrible at explaining stuff. You might Google it, though.
