I was looking for mapping in the opposite direction. From the Solaris
clients to the Windows Share. I too can access shares on *NIX machines
from Windows boxes but I was hoping to mount my Windows shares from *NIX
like I do with mount.cifs from Linux.

I see some promising links with cifs server for open Solaris, usually
means it would work with Solaris 10 but maybe not in this case.
