mounting network drive


I'm running Fedora Core on my main pc, but i have most of my files on my server (windows 2000 server). Now i just want to mount the shared drives into my linux (if its possible of course ).
I've read several networking how-to's and mounting tutorials, but i didnt find the answer there...

I hope someone can help me,
many thanks in advance!

Well, ive been looking some more, and i found this:
smbmount //server/80gig /mnt/80gig -o username=Administrator
This seems to work, because it asks my password, but after that i get this:
ERROR: smbfs filesystem not supported by the kernel
Please refer to the smbmnt(8) manual page
smbmnt failed: 255
Someway easy i can fix this problem?
Or are there other ways to mount a windows network drive...?

mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxx,password=xxxxx //netbiosname or ip/share /mount/point

I just use the ip instead of the computer name, seems to work a little better.
