trying to mount share from windows computer


hey everyone! new to ubuntu, but not linux or debian based distros. i have been using mepis for awhile now and my problem is this. i have a windows pc with a shared drive and in mepis i was mounting the shared drive via the rc.local file with this line in it
Code:
mount -t smbfs //desktop/share /mnt/share -o rw,user,fmask=0770,dmask=0770,username=user,password=passwd
this would mount fine in mepis and then i created links to the folders i wanted in my home directory

now in ubuntu, this does mount the drive but i get permission denied when trying to cd to that directory or browsing to it in gnome, i know i am missing something simple here, any help will be very much appreciated.
