I don't have any problems... I have a share on a winxp box. I can
mount it on my FC5 box:
mount -ousername=uname,password=pword -tcifs // /mnt/cifs

I can then copy files to /mnt/cifs and copy files from /mnt/cifs.
I can run
eog /mnt/floppy/DSC02723.JPG
and display a picture off of the remote share....

what issus are you running into exactly?
