Where did you get that syntax from?

If it is smbmount you need a -o before the options, and smbclient doesn't
look like that at all. What is "myname/MYHOUSE"? If it is domain/workgroup
related use the workgroup option to specify domain/workgroup.

Finally, I think you may be happier using NFS between 2 unix boxes. But it
is of course your choice.
