mount "too many mounted" smbfs

I have Fedora Core 2 installed. After a week I am no longer able to mount a network share on a Windows 2003 server. I have used mount with the IP and name to no avail. It gives the error "wrong fs type, bad option...or too many mounted file systems." Here is my fstab contents:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf udf,iso9660 noauto,owner, kudzu,ro 0 0

Here's the command I am running:
mount -t smbfs -o username=[username],password=[pw] // /mnt/smb

This has worked before on this machine and for other Linux clients on my network.

Thanks for any suggestions.
