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

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

Have you tried this?

It appears that root privilege is required....
