Better use mount (it will call smbmount):

mount -t smbfs -o username=myname password=mypass //service/path /mount/point

If you would like to mount the samba share on boot, you could add a fstab 
entry for it too:

//service/path	/mount/point	smbfs	username=myname,password=mypass	0 0

Best regards.
