Post automounting network ntfs
I'm using Ubuntu 8.10, and am trying to set up my fstab to mount a Windows XP network share. I think my fstab should look something like

"192.168.1.2:/fileserver /home/pdoconnell/Fileserver ntfs-3g defaults 0 0"

but when I then run

"sudo mount /home/pdoconnell/Fileserver"

I get an error reading

"ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '192.168.1.2:/fileserver': No such file or directory
Please type '/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g --help; for more information."

I'm not sure what to do in this situation. A reboot doesn't work either. How should my fstab be set up, even generically so I could look for more information.

Windows network drives are mounted by CIFS http://linux-cifs.samba.org/
Good luck.
