Oh boy, ha, ha. Not any more confused than normal.
Don't use the mount cmd much and seem to forget the
syntax whenever I do it again. I created the dir
/media/samba just for the output and would have worked
if I left the/mnt off. I got what I wanted but the
hard way.
Actually, I just wanted to know what the syntax for
the {server} is in the smbmount command but still
don't know it.
FYI, I'm on a gutsy 64 bit machine on which I can't
see my 32 bit gutsy via naulilus but can see this one
and even copy to it from the 32 bit machine. AFAIK,
both were set up the same way; same smb.conf, etc. The
mount cmd did collect the 32bit machine data; but
can't get naulilus to pick it up. Any, thoughts on
what may be wrong? Probably, I should post separately
on this.
I became confused just about through the first
paragraph. But, thanks for trying'

I went looking for smbfs in info mount and found it. But it says
there that the current mount does not support smbsf. So I wonder how you
discovered that this works? It talked to mount version 2.12 as not
working. I see we have version 2.13 on my Ubuntu so perhaps that is why
it works.

It starts out like the usual manual mount call but then it uses -o
to let you include name and password and then the "//<samba
mount point>" I have no idea where you found that :-)

Maybe under NFS mounting?
