I usually use smbmount for mounting shares:

smbmount //tarryn/d /mnt/d

If that doesn't work then could try the following:

smbmount //tarryn/d /mnt/d -o username=guest
(samba doesn't use 'guest' as its guest user normally)

smbmount //tarryn/d /mnt/d -o ip=
smbmount // /mnt/d
(again spcifically tell it ip)

smbmount //tarryn/d /mnt/d -o workgroup=<domain>

or a mixture of the above ( -o username=guest,ip= etc...)

Also make sure that your computer has joined the domain
(done by doing : net rpc join -U Administrator)

Hope that helps
