[Samba] Direct access to subdirectories using smbclient

The problem is that for security reasons users must access 
\\\dvds\examples instead of \\\dvds
or any other folder below dvds
but the shared folder is \\\dvds ..
I know that using nautilus or konqueror do what i need, but
want to do it with smbclient or smbmount..

any ideas?
