That depends on the Unix flavor. On Linux, it is possible because of the
smbfs support built into the kernel. This makes smbmount work. In
commercial Unices, where you generally do NOT have the sources for the
kernel, it is not possible until you vendor adds smbfs support. FYI, smbfs
is the smb filesystem.
