All "folders" need to be specified to be shared by the server.  For
example, if you want "C:\", then you need to select the root directories
on the server, and give it a share name, usually "C".  Then, to read that
share, you type:

   mount -t smbfs //servername/C /mnt/smb

There is *always* a shared name, so you can't have just "//servername/".
