Need to access Windows Server 2003 shared folder from the Redhat Linux Web browser.

I've tried the command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=pwd //COMPUTERNAME/SHARENAME /home/user/mountdir

The command executes with no errors, but when I try to click on the mount directory I get:
"Couldn't display "/home/user/mountdir" because Nautilus cannot determin what type of file it is.

If I use:

smbclient //<windowscomputername>/<windowssharename> -U <username> I can log in and do a list of the Windows files.  They contain html files, so I need to open them from the Linux web browser from a mounted folder.
Can anyone help?
Thanks
