Hey ,

 For mounting the windows drive on linux you have to use mount command

mount -t smbfs //windows machine name/share directory  /mnt/share -o
user=windows user

then it will ask for the password.give the password of the windows user

If you want to kept it forever

edit /etc/fstab file and add an entry 

//windowsmahcine name/share folder     /mnt/share    smbfs  
credentials=  /etc/.smb           0 0

in /etc/.smb file give this

username = windows username
password = windows user password 

you can give any file means against /etc/.smb file but make sure that
permissions for that  are 600 .

like this ,you can  also make a file like this  /etc//home/bhargav/.smb



and make
