In order to mount a windows share you will need to be root, you will need to know the name of the windows machine and the name of the share you want access to. You also need to have a directory on your computer made for mounting this share (probably in the /mnt directory) After that you do:

mount -t smbfs //computer/share /mnt/location/

where "computer" is the windows machine you are connecting to, "share', is the name of the share, and "/mnt/location/" is the path on your linux box where you want the share to be connected.

If you need to send a username and password, try:

mount -t smbfs //computer/share -o username=user /mnt/location/

You will be prompted for your password.
