I am running Debian.. Am I missing a package to install??

Ok, an update. I installed cifs-utils and now I am getting

mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual oage (e.g. man mount.cifs)

I think you need the libsmbclient package, and the smbfs one might be useful too.

Is your kernel up-to-date?

Try this:

$ sudo apt-get install smbfs

And then try to monut the cifs share!
