Problem mounting SMB folder from Win Server 2003 in a Mac OS X

Hi Everyone,

I am having a problem mounting more than one Samba share folder. In my Win
Server 2003, I have 3 folders (3 different partitions drive) on share.
However, there is only one that shows when I have access to my workgroup. I
tried to delete them all and when connected, only one still appear. What do
I do wrong? How can I have access to them all through my Mac OS X. I follow
the direction right on how to have access to workgroup from Win server 2003
to a Mac OS X platform. Might I have left something behind?
Also I do not understand why I am not able to get my username and password
automatically showing in my SMB/CIFS filesystem authentication even though
it has been added to my keychain. Is there a way to have it done? Only the
Workgroup appears right but the username is set to the account name. It is
annoying to have to type account name and password all the time.

Please would appreciate some help.

Thanks

Do your problem shares have any non-alphanumeric characters such as
spaces or are the names particularly long? If so, try very short share
names without spaces and with only A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and "-" (hyphen) as the
only characters.

Also, if you'll set your Mac OS X account name (long name and short
name) to the same as your server then you should get what you're after
when trying to connect to the server. By default, when you connect to a
network resource, the current account name that you're logged in under
will be displayed.

Hope this helps! bill
