[jcifs] java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: smb

I am trying to connect to a remote NT workstation using SmbFile, but come up
with an unknown protocol Exception.
"java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: smb"
The line that throws the exception is:
smbfile = new
normally manually accessing a machine we use:
NET USE /PERSISTENT:NO q: \\machinename\c$ /USER:machinename\administrator
I have put the jcifs-0.7.0b9.jar in the same dir as the rest of my class
My aim is to go through a list of NT workstations checking to see if a
directory exists in a NT4 server environment. 
Appreciate any feedback.
