[Samba] smbmount ... error

I've spent the last 3 hours (it seems like) going over postings in the
comp.protocols.smb newsgroup trying to find a solution for this problem.
It seems that a lot of folks have had the issue, but none of the posts
I looked at had any useful resolution. Here's the error:
28968: protocol negotiation failed
SMB connection failed
I'm running RHEL 4 Workstation with Samba Version 3.0.10-1.4E. I'm
running as a client, not a server, and am attempting to mount a share
from a Windows server. There is much networking mumbo-jumbo in the way,
but I don't think any of it applies, since I can telnet to port 139 on
the server in question and telnet connects nicely.
But any Samba utility I use fails with the above error, never getting to
the point where it asks for a password. The main command I need to run is:
smbmount //.../share /data/mount -o username=me
It should prompt me for my password. The domain is specified correctly
in the smb.conf file. In fact, I can use 'smbmount' to access another
system in the company, without any problem.
Any suggestions and assistance is much appreciated. *Please* respond to
me directly as I'm not subscribed to the list.
Thanks in advance.
