Mount shared folder in home network

Sorry for newbie question. I have a small home network (xp desktop, Synology deskstation NAS, SUSE 10.1 laptop) I want to access the shared folder on the NAS from the laptop . In XP it is accessed as \\\Our Files.
Can someone please explain how I mount the NAS folder at startup so I can access it from linux?

As root, create a mount point (basically, a directory) like /mnt/ourfiles or /whatever.
Edit your /etc/fstab, add the line :\ Files /whatever nfs defaults 0 0

Now run "mount /whatever", and the partition should be available like if it was a local filesystem.

Thanks for suggestion - unable to get it working, in the end reinstalled Suse 10.2, now able to access files from Konqueror.
