The username being passed is that which you are using on the Linux box. If
your user names don't match, use the -U switch and specify the NT username
with which you want to connect.  Also, make sure your Linux box is using
the right domain.  The -W switch may be useful.  And, of course, make sure
your caps lock key isn't on.  8-)  It wouldn't hurt to make sure you have
permissions on the NT box for the share you're trying to access.

Hope that helps.
