If the Windoze box is called winbox and the shared drive is C, then on the
Linux box to mount that share at the mount point /mnt/winc do (as root):
smbmount //winbox/c /mnt/winc
You'll then be prompted for a password.  If no password was specified on the
Windoze machine, just hit enter.  Otherwise enter the password.

This is presuming that the Windoze machine has an entry in the /etc/hosts
file on the Linux box.  Otherwise, the Windoze machine's hostname can be
replaced by its numeric IP.
