Q: mounting shares with space inside name

I'm trying to mount a share from an NT machine which has an
space inside, i.e doing something like that:

mount -t smbfs -o username=nardmann,password=xxx "//machine/for internal
use" internal_use

I always get the message

Could not resolve mount point internal

How do I mount such shares with whitespace inside the share name?
