[Samba] From Linux to Windows Dfs

Is there any reason why I cannot mount to a Dfs share on a Windows 2000 box 
from Linux?

I have tried:

# mount -t smbfs //server/share$ /mnt/point -o username=user

Which works...

# mount -t smbfs //server/share$/home/pupils/user /mnt/point -o username=user

Trying to mount any share within the Dfs root retruns:

23479: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid 
share name)
SMB connection failed
