smbmount error

I posted a similar email recently regarding this. One thing has changed, 
however; I have upgraded my kernel to 2.2.6 (hence I'm now using the samba 
version of smbmount rather than the smbfs version).
I get the error "no such device" when trying to mount a network drive.
My command line is:

smbmount "\\\\susangra\\c-hd" -c 'mount /mnt'

the console text which follows is:

Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Server time is Fri May 28 16:18:20 1999
Timezone is UTC-4.0
mount error: No such device
Please refer to the smbmnt(8) manual page
mount failed

smbclient works perfectly fine with:

smbclient \\\\susangra\\c-hd

Any help appreciated :)
