samba and spaces

I am trying to mount a Mac HD with the name Macintosh HD.
The smbmount command seems to have a problem with spaces.
If I use smbmount ////sknebel//'Macintosh HD' it will mount but when I look in
+the /home/samba/Mac where I mount it nothing is there.
If I use smbclient ////sknebel//'Mactinosh HD'and then issue a ls command I can
+see my Mac hard drive.

Is there a way around this space thing for mounting.
