I'm running ubuntu x64 as a virtual machine using VMWare 6.5.0.

I am trying to mount one of the drives off the host machine as a network drive using
mount -t smbfs //servername/sharename /mountdirectory -o username=mywindowsusername,password=mywindowspassword
I don't receive any errors but it seems to freeze up and I end up having to <cntrl> + C out of it.
