It is very simple.

Assuming that you have installed the appropriate samba packages (the 
samba-client packages), and that you have properly created a share on 
the windows machine, just run the command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=foo //WinServer/share ./smbdir/

This typically will have to be run as root.

You can then read and write to the mounted directory just like any other 
normal local directory.

If you don't have root access, run:

smbclient //WinServer/share -U foo

You can then put and get files similar to command line ftp.
