If you're trying to mount the share as a drive, you'll want to use smbmount. See

If that does not help you, then please explain exactly what it is that you are trying to accomplish (i.e., what you mean when you say you want to "mount" the share), and please describe the specific steps that you are using to attempt to do so, and a complete description of what happens. Are there any error messages? If so, please include the full and exact text of them.

Can you help with this problem?
