Another way on Sun is to use smbsh. This is part of Samba, but you do need
to set the appropriate options to configure to generate the binaries
needed. Smbsh does not "map" an SMB resource into your file system but
works more like automounter does. When you run smbsh you c an cd to /smb
where an 'ls' will list the domains and workgroups, cd to a workgroup and
you see the machines in that workgroup, cd to the machine name and you see
the shared resources, etc...

If you were using Linux you could use smbfs.
