Can't mount Windows 2003 Server Share in Ubuntu 7

Hello,

I am trying to mount a windows share via command line in ubuntu 7. I'm getting an error of "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //server/share". I'm able to browse my Windows shares from the same OS install via the GUI. I used a /etc/cifspw file and edited the /etc/fstab file to mount the share. Any ideas? Thanks,

Brian

Thanks. I ended up running "sudo apt-get install smbfs" at the termina and then the above statement worked.  Not sure why it works in the GUI but not on the CL.
