connecting ubuntu to a windows 2003 server
going through the GUI on ubuntu I am able to see the server share but as soon as i try to open it it doesnt show any files. 7.10 didnt give me any problems with this but hardy herron seams to stop at the point of seeing my server. Everytime I try searching this on google all the results seem to be irrelevant. any help here is appreciated

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 64bit on a Dell Precision M65 Laptop.
I use autofs for all shares I need to access, it's good because I have shares at work and at home and autofs only mount's on demand.

Setup for autofs is similar as settings shares in fstab
workshare -fstype=smbfs,credentials=/etc/.mypassword,rw,uid=1000,gid=16777216 ://

The reson I use the UID and GID is that 1000 is my user id and GID is my GROUP ID on the windows domain is 16777216

I also tried to use the GUI ( Places -> Network ) and found my same share and browsed into it normally without problems.
you have smbfs and smbclient installed ?
