To mount a windows share on linux as an example:
mount -t smbfs //w4ao06/"mitzeli c" /mnt/winshare

There are previous post on the subject you can search for further help. for more info documentation on smbmount.

I dont think it likes the 'space' in your share name. Just a guess.

what if you remove the quotes around the share name?
how many mount points do you have otherwise? are you hitting the limit? make sure that /mnt/winshare exists as a directory.

Also -- I noticed that in your original post (ChrisMiceli) that you labelled the windows share "W4a0o6 " but then in MichaelK's post he labelled it as "w4ao06" -- i would assume this is case sensitive, so make sure your labels match.
