Network sharing Win-Fedora3

Q: I can't access my Windows network shares anymore! People tell me to use the smbmount command, but it doesn't work!

A: Fedora Core 3 uses a cool new type of Windows file sharing called "The Common Internet File System" (CIFS). Instead of using "smbmount", try:
mount -t cifs //computername/share /mnt/somedirectory
For more information about this, in a terminal you can do:
man mount.cifs
