I've read through a lot of this forum, and saw a lot of great help, thanks for helping all us ubuntu babies out.
I've run into a problem with mounting windows vista shares. I'm on hardy.
I've followed the step-by-step, having installed smbfs and have wins support. Still, when I try to mount my windows share permanently I get this error:
rastem@MediaCenter:~$ sudo mount -a
retrying with upper case share name
mount error 6 = No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

Sinistar is the name of the vista computer. I can ping via wins and IP, and I can also connect to the folder via Places -> Connect to server
Am I missing something obvious? I've seen a lot of folks talking about different errors, but not much on error 6. It's either something wily, or cockpit error on my part, but I wanted to throw it up here.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
