    What I did in both 7.10 and 8.04:

    Places -> Connect to Server...

    type in SMB domain, share, folder, and username

    What 7.10 did:

    Connected me to the correct folder immediately, and created a link to the folder on my desktop. When I log out and log back in, the folder is happily still there.

    What 8.04 does:

    Prints out this error message:

    Can't display location "smb://domain/share/folder

    The specified location is not mounted
    Creates a link for the ROOT share on my desktop (WHY?!)

    When I open it up, creates a SECOND link to the root share on my desktop

    When I log out, both links disappear permanently

    Try the following from a terminal window but replace the 'windowsbox' with the IP address. Using the client from the terminal will provide you with any error messages. This worked for me.

    smbclient //windowsbox/share

    example smbclient //192.168.2.2/share

    Code:
    shii@daxyne:~$ smbclient //home.its.longdomain.com/home
    session request to HOME.ITS.LONGDOM failed (Called name not present)
    Password: 
    session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
    I did enter the password right, too
    eh
