Spaces in Directory Names

Hi there.

What is the correct way to smbmount a directory on a machine where
that directory has a space in the name ie:

# smbmount "//machine/SOME DATA" /mnt/name -c client -U user -P pass

seemed to mount the directory that I wanted, but then:

# mount
//machine/SOME on DATA type /mnt/name (smbfs)

and I can't get rid of it either. Also

# df
df: DATA: No such file or directory.
