Mounting Windows network drive from Linux with cifs / dfs
 
I've been trying to mount from Linux a Windows drive. I have success mounting to Windows 2003 servers using the mount.cifs command -

mount.cifs //10.10.10.10/secretshare$/logfiles /mnt/logfiles -o dom=COMPANY,user=geek,pass=nerdsruLe

No problems yet.

Under Windows XP, I get this nice share mapped when we log in:

departments on 'root.company.com\user\fileshare3' (G:)

So I tried to mount the network drive from Linux using the command:

mount.cifs //root.company.com/user/fileshare3/departments /mnt/networkdrive -o dom=COMPANY,user=geek,pass=nerdsruLe

retrying with upper case share name
mount error 6 = No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

How can I mount this under Linux?
