samba mount problem

we use windows 2k at work, but i'm a linux zealot so i'm trying to setup my linux machine at work.

i notice under "My Computer" on my windows machine, i have a mapped network drive:
myname on 'blahblah\Home' (H:)

so naturally i try to mount it on my linux machine like:
smbmount //blahblah/Home/myname /mnt/blah

but it errors:
1610: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid share name)

but if i do:
smbmount //blahblah/Home /mnt/blah

then it works, but i have to cd into myname. how can i mount myname directly?

thanks for the help.
