Hallo, Gungne,

Structure (not completely tested)

        smbclient -N -L <win2003>

shows the names of the shares.

        mount //<win2003>/<Share> /mnt/localshare

should ask for username and password; the mountpoint has to exist.

I've just tried the mount line: "mount.cifs" doesn't work, but "mount"  
tells to try the "cifs" type and works well, "mount -t cifs" too. Samba  

Viele Gruesse!
