smbfs is Linux only I think. 

smbclient provides an ftp like interface
smbsh provides a shell interface

Depends on what you want.

If you want to see the NT machines as a file system
from all processes, then Samba can't currently do it;
you need to NFS for Windows, which is available from
Microsoft (SFU -- Services for Unix) and versions of 
NFS for Windows are also available from other 3rd party
