I use this method on my FreeBSD 6.1 system.
1) Create a directory: '/c'
2) Create an alias:
alias c:='mount /c'
3) Place this in my /etc/fstab file:
//user-name at bios-name/directory /c smbfs rw,noauto 0 0
Obviously you will need to make sure that the drive or directory you
want to access are configured correctly on the Windows machine.
Now all I have to do is type: c: at the command line and the Win share
is mounted. I can then do a simple cp <file> <Win-file>.
