mount - a passwdless 98 share prompts for password

im trying to mount the windows98 share as I do my other samba shares;

mount -t smbfs //Gratis/c/ /mnt/starship_web/

and it prompts for password. their is no password set for that machine, anywhere. So how to I pass the 'guest' argument (if there is one) and/or um/// what am I missing?

im sharing the entire C drive, thats the /c/ in there... and gratis is of course the machines name, but i replaced that with the IP address and I get this:

[root@localhost KaZaA Lite]# mount -t smbfs // /mnt/starship_web/
1420: session request to failed (Called name not present)
1420: session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
1420: session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)
SMB connection failed

ANY ideas?

I remember pressing return when that message (the passphrase-message) appeared.

Try "man smbmount" otherwise, I think there should be a "guest" flag somewhere...
