fyi, you could have replaced those \\ with /  and it worked just fine...

smbmount //hostname/path/to/share  /local/mount/point -o ip=,username=hostname/my_userid,password=whatever


anyways, a typical mount -t cifs looks like...

    mount -t cifs //server/share /local/mount/point -o ip= 

[where whatever is the user's password]   ip shouldn't be needed if 
'server' resolves
