[Samba] Access Windows AD share From Linux

I am trying to mount and access a Windows share, from one of our Active 
Directory servers to one of our RedHat Enterprise 4 Linux hosts. I have 
used Samba in the past to do the opposite, which worked very well.
I was successful in mounting the share, using the following:
mount -t smbfs -o username=<myid>,password=<mypassword> //<AD 
Server>/<Share> /mnt/app1
However, when I "cd" into the "/mnt/app1" directory and try to list the 
contents I get a "Permission Denied" error.
I am unable to allow an AD trust with the Linux client to the AD domain, 
so any solution cannot require joining the Linux host to the AD domain.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank You.
