[Samba] Mounting windows file system

Hi all,

I just installed Redhat 9, but can't see how to mount
Windows file system directories on our network. From 
the Network Servers menu options I can get to the 
machines, but want to set mountpoints further down in 
the file systems on these machines so I don't have to 
walk so far down to get at files.

Also, my applications such as Openoffice write and such 
cannot see the Windows machines from /mnt and the smb 
point does not show up.

I'm pretty well versed in Unix, but have no real 
experience with Samba. Most of my experience is just 
with Unix to Unix machines.

Someone told me to go from the menu to System Settings 
--> Server Settings --> Samba Server, but I have no 
Samba Server option there, only one that says 'Services.'

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks much Sambanistas!
