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>.
