you can mount any SMB share (win and real Samba) with smbmount.


smbmount \\\\machine_to_mount\\cdrom -U andreas -c 'mount /mnt/cdrom'

The -U is the user for the share. You'll be asked for a password.

Pay attention to the four/two backslashes. 

It works here since I accidently killed my NFS a week ago  :-)
