Under Linux, however, you can use the smbmount to do just what you want.
Once mounted, then you can treat it just like any other
directory/filesystem.  I know it smbmount doesn't work under Mac OS X
and believe smbmount only supports Linux, but I'm not positive on that

Not as far as I know - it behaves very much like an FTP client. Once
you've connected and authenticated yourself, you use 'get' and 'put'
commands to access files on the share.
