Mount Win2K3 share drive via cifs

The thing is that if you want to mount a share drive in Windows 2003 Server domain under your /mnt/smth smbfs won't do the trick anymore, you have to use cifs. So, to mount //windows/somefolder under folder /mnt/anotherfolder you need to execute this:

$ mount -t cifs //root/exchange /mnt/root -o username=mikhail.itkin
It will also prompt you for a password.

Found the solution here at ubuntuforums.
