You can if the client's kernel supports it. For some reason, smbmount doesn't 
do CIFS and there doesn't seem to be a CIFS equivalent, so you'll have to use 
mount with something like:

mount -t cifs //remote/share /path/to/mountpoint

which of course won't work for a normal user, but an fstab entry should help.

To check whether your kernel supports CIFS, check /proc/filesystems.
