What version of jCIFS are you using?  The later versions (0.7.3+, I think) will
restart the authentication process upon failure.  Internet Explorer will prompt
upon the restart, which I think is what you are looking for.  Basically, you
should be able to set IE to "Automatic Logon"; if the credentials cannot be
authenticated, jCIFS will ask the browser for authentication again, and IE will
prompt for new credentials.
