NFS & Samba problems

Well I'm a new user to FreeBSD, decided I'd give 4.9 a shot yesterday since I had this extra HDD sitting around. Well all goes well, I have video & sound working, but now I've run into the snag of getting a hold of my data off of my linux samba/nfs server.
When I tried to use mount_smbfs to mount a samba share I received this error:
phineas# mount_smbfs -I 192.168.0.4 //zac at black/homes /mnt/home
mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = Operation timed out
This of course upset me because using the XFCe4 File Manager I was able to login to the linux samba/nfs server via smbclient and view my data. I hunted long and hard through all the mailing list entries for an answer to my problem and have come up with nothing. I've also googled numerous times on the google.com/bsd site to no avail. I'm really missing the "smbmount" command because it would all be fine if I could just use that. My next attempt was with NFS in which I setup my linux server with, setup my FreeBSD as a client just as the bsddiary.com version explained. I then issued the command:
phineas# mount 192.168.0.4:/home/zac /mnt/home
192.168.0.4:/home/zac: nfsd: RPCPROG_NFS: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to send
It repeats the 2nd statement till I press "ctrl+c" in the console. At this point I'd just be happy to be able to mount a share and listen to my mp3's and access my school work etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
