Hi - using gnome I am trying to use Places -> Connect to Server to mount 
a windows share. I can do:

smbclient //disk.site.edu/uname$ -U uname%passwd

but have not been able to transfer that infomation into the GUI that can 
mount the Windows Share, specifically can't figure out how to enter the 

I'm trying make things as simple as possible for windows students to use
