[cifs-protocol] mount.cifs - Can someone give me a working example

I want to mount some of my XP shares on my Fedora Core 5 box on my home LAN and used to be able to do this with "mount -t smbfs..."
and now that does not work anymore. I see that cifs is used instead but I am having a very hard time getting that to work. My old
syntax does not work anymore and I am not sure of the currently required syntax on how to do this. Previously, this worked:
mount -t smbfs //missy/MY_vids_01 /mnt/MY_vid_01 -o
(missy is in my /etc/hosts file as 192.168.0.3)
This does not work anymore, nor does it work by substituting cifs for smbfs.
Not even mount.cifs works, I get error after error, no matter what I try.
thought that for sure this would work but it does not...
[root at ohmster mnt]# mount.cifs -t cifs //192.168.0.3/MY_vids_01 /mnt/MY_vid_01 -o username=user,password=pass,rw
Mounting the DFS root for domain not implemented yet
No ip address specified and hostname not found
[root at ohmster mnt]#
I tried again with a credential file:
[root at ohmster mnt]# mount -t cifs //missy/MY_Vids_01 /mnt/MY_vid_01/ -o rw,credentials=/home/ohmster/scripts/cifsauth
mount error 12 = Cannot allocate memory
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
[root at ohmster mnt]#
I don't quite understand this memory thing. I googled for it and came up with this from some kind of Xen page:
Error: Error creating domain: (12, ' Cannot allocate memory')
* Versions: 2.0
* Occurs when: trying to start domain
* Probable cause
o allocated memory for "dom0 + running domUs + domU that you are trying to start" exceeds physical memory
o Reduce the amount of memory required for the new domU, or balloon down the memory of the running domUs
What does that mean? I am not trying to run any kind of a domain server, I only want to mount a Windows share with a workgroup name,
user name, and user password.
Does mount -t cifs or mount.cifs actually work at all and could someone please give me an example that would work for my setup?
I am pulling my hair out with this, can somebody please supply a working example? Thanks.
