Network path not found typically means:

1. Can't connect to the Samba server. Have you checked with ping, telnet 

2. The NetBIOS name can't be translated. Have you checked with nmblookup 
to see if the name is in WINS/etc?

3. There are authentication problems. 

4. The share does not exist.

5. The share exists, but the path it points to does not exist, or you do 
not have access to the path that the share points to.
Take your pick.
