[Samba] smbmount as user

I'm using Debian woody.

ii  smbfs 2.2.3a-12.3 mount and umount commands for the smbfs...

I want to mount a W2K share as user. Mount as root works fine.
The entry in /etc/fstab looks like this:

//NOTEBOOK/D /notebook/D: smbfs  user,username=ernohl,noauto 0 3

If I try to mount:

erno at flinker:~$ mount /notebook/D:
cannot mount on /notebook/D:: Operation not permitted
smbmnt failed: 1

I'm sure the remote password is ok. But what is wrong?

Thanks in advance
