It should, unless the win2k is in "native" active directory mode, or
whatever it's called. Something like 'smbclient -L win2kbox' will list the
shared drives.

You can also use smbclient as a ftp style client to access files.
smbwrapper(smbsh) should work on solaris (?) or perhaps sharity(-light),
both give you a more filesystem-like view (I assume, I haven't actually
used either ...)
