I have a netgear NAS1100 which uses samba shares.  which as you say just
mounts in winxp no problem.
trying to get it to mount in linux had me going round in circles.
eventually turned out i needed to mount a share not the root of the machine
eg. // not // and use the name of the share as
username with blank password.

"sudo mount -t cifs // /media/fnd/ -o

 this may not be the case but hey worth a try.
