I've done things like that, but find that I need to use some additional
mount options to pass along username and password for the share being
mounted. something like:

mount -t cifs -o user=me,password=mypassword //host/path /mnt/foobar

and possibly uid and gid as well, etc.

see "man mount.cifs" for gory details.
