[Samba] How to set permissions to mount share?

I've got two redhat 3 as servers. I'm trying to mount a share on one,
this is the command I'm using:
# mount -t smbfs -o username=backup,password=*** //mystique/etc

When I do that, I get this error:
13636: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

Now, on the one server, I've created a samba share to the /etc directory
and given the user backup permissions to read it. Why would I be getting
that error when I try to run mount?
