The smbsh function works nicely on  Solaris 8.
You run smbsh, it prompts you for your login and password
for the PDC and then gives you a shell prompt.  The shell is
taken from $SHELL by default.  You can then cd to /smb
and begin walking around in your SMB network like a regular
directory structure.
