mounting a NFS share using samba

I have a redhat machine running samba. From the GUI I can bowse through the servers and fine the server that I am looking for and log in. When I try to do this from a command line I am having a probem. Should there be a line in fstab for this.
[root@backupsvr root]# mount -t smbfs -o username=mmidgett,password=admin //gridgenotes/mail /mnt/gserver
2572: Connection to gridgenotes failed
SMB connection failed

What am I doing wrong.

I'm not sure what this has to do with NFS but try using the IP address rather than the hostname.

I have the hostname in the host file. This should work properly. I also tried to use the ip address like you said.

Well I went home and tried the same command on a win 98 comp that was shareing a drive and I was able to mount it fine. Is there any reason that I would not be able to connect to a windows 2000 Server with my usual username and password? I have doulble check passwords and IP adresses.
