Mounting Windows shares

Ok, here's my problem. I have a network with 4 windows PC's, and I want to mount some of their drives on my Ubuntu machine, so that It'll be a little more practical viewing Backups and stuff. I reviewed a lot of material on this site and Ubuntu's wiki, but I still can't seem to get this working. I always get an error saying:
[mntent]: line 11 in /etc/fstab is bad
[mntent]: line 12 in /etc/fstab is bad
[mntent]: line 15 in /etc/fstab is bad
[mntent]: line 17 in /etc/fstab is bad
[mntent]: line 18 in /etc/fstab is bad; rest of file ignored
Here's part of my fstab, lines 11 through 18, etc. Only the last PC needs a password. I tried substituting the first comuters name to it's IP adress, but it doesn't make a difference.
smbmount://"Documents and Settings"/"Radio Mensajero"/"Mis documentos"  /home/mensajer/Backup/Noticias/docs/  smbfs  guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode  0  0
smbmount://DISCOTECA/Delta/"Mis documentos"  /media/Backup/Discoteca/docs/  smbfs  guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode  0  0
smbmount://RECEPCION/C/"Documents and Settings"/"Radio Mensajero"/"Mis documentos"  /media/Backup/
Recepcion/docs/  smbfs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode  0  0
smbmount://OFFICE/C-OFFICE/"My Documents"  /media/Backup/Office/docs/  smbfs -o username=******,password=******,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode  0  0
If any more details are needed, please ask.

If the smbmount is in the fstab file then that is wrong. Here is an Example of one of mine.
//  /mnt/lcomp15_smbfs/lcomp15_smbfs_ddrive              smbfs   umask=000,users,noauto,credentials=/home/crusher58/credentials/win2000credentials 0 0
