Unhappy SMB client not working under RH9

Heres my problem: I am using Red hat 9, and when I type smb:/ into Konquorer, it displays my windows WORKGROUP, when I double click on it, it shows the 2 windows machines, If I double click on either of them, it shows me the shared drives, but when I double click on any of these drives, it just doesnt go any further. The cog keeps spinning but I cant access the drives.

type as root:-
"mkdir /mnt/<winbox_name>"
"mount -t smbfs //<winbox_name>/<share_name> /mnt/<winbox_name>"
"cd /mnt/winbox_name"
if you see the files that are on your windows box with no errors in the other steps then all is well, konqueror is screwing up again.
you need to add the shares to you fstab if you want them to be loaded every time you boot up, if not you need to type "mount -t smbfs //<winbox_name>/<share_name> /mnt/<winbox_name>" every time you want to mount them, of course to unmount them, it's "umount /mnt/<winbox_name>
