SLES 10SP1 - Connect to a network share different user

I'm running SLES 10SP1 and try to access a network share (samba).
The problem is that the login dialog provide me input fields of
"Domain" & "Password" only.

The title in this dialog show that I'm going to use the current Linux
user to be authenticated against samba but this can't be done since the samaba server do not "know" this user.

Where the "UserName" textbox gone comparing to the last version (SLES 10)?

Is there a place I need to change the authentication mode to be able connect a share with a different user?
