I'm fairly certain that smbmount requires the NetBIOS
hostname as the server name, not the IP Address. (If smb is
unable to find the IP with the standard resoution
order/mechanisms, one can be specified with an option.)
Also, if you are trying to mount a share, you need to
specify the share. Konqueror is *not* actually mounting any
shares. It's just displaying the shares and the files
within on the fly without mounting. (The command line
equivalent would be to use smbclient.)
When your asking for help, instead of just asking "why
doens't this work." please post the results of your command.
What is the result (output) when you type the mount command?

That steal the goose from off the common,
But let the greater villain loose
That steals the common from the goose.

Darn it, that appears to be correct, although I thought I was doing this
in practice, despite the example I gave.
I might have gotten sloppy, because I can use smb://myserver in
Konqueror, and it works.
