How do I Mount a shared folder on Ubuntu release 10.04 lucid


Hi
I would like to mount a folder that is shared on a windows network machine so that I can access the files within a Linux machine. The purpose is to be able to work back and forth within the two machines. I have tried to go to the Places applet and accessed the Network > Windows Network and I receive an error "Unable to mount location 'Failed to retrieve share list from server'"

Is there any way that I could use the 'mount' command to accomplish this task and to have the folder auto mount at every boot?

Thanks in advance
