Install from Windows Share

I'm using XenServer 5.5... I have setup a network share with my windows iso images, and when creating a new vm, I want xenserver to go out to the share to get the iso, as opposed to putting a cd in the local drive....  I looked on the citrix site and found how they say to do it with command "xe-mount-iso-sr //server1/images -t  smbfs -o username=user"... I don't get an error when I do this,, but for some reason isn't working for me....  I'm expecting to see the different ISOs show up in the cd/dvd dropdown...  is this correct?
