Another Samba Mount Question


I am trying to mount a win2000 share to my RH 7.3 linux box.

When I enter the command:
/usr/sbin/smbmount //SERVER/Music /mnt/test -o username=foo,password=bar

I receive the error:
Error was No such file or directory.smbmnt failed: 1

This same error appears when I try the syntax of
mount -t smbfs //SERVER/Music /mnt/music -o username=foo,password=bar

I am not sure which file or directory doesn't exist? When I use "smbclient -L" I can see the Music share on SERVER

security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
/mnt/test exists as does2 //SERVER/music
I the same user set up on both boxes.

Am I just completely missing a step?
Thanks in advance for all the help! I just started playing with linux and it can get so frustrating! =)

I am not too sure what Nautilus. Is it a gnome program? I have been using kde but I'll try and play with it.
