Default Mounting Vista Share

Ok so I am working through the documentation listed here


I have gotten to the following point.

sudo mount -t cifs //netbiosname/sharename /media/sharename -o username=winusername,password=winpassword,iocharse t=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777

I change all the necessary info to match my system and when I hit enter it prompts for password which I give it and i get the following:

retrying with upper case share name
mount error 6 = No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

I have made the changes to /etc/hosts to make sure my computer name is there. a new directory has been created on my system to mount the share into. Any ideas what I have missed to this point?
