#smbclient -L hostip -U win user name -W workgroup name
hostip -- ip of windows machine on which the shared directory lies
workgroup name -- name of the workgroup e.g abc.com
2. now make a directory on your linux machine, this is basically your mount point
3. write the following entry in you /etc/fstab
hostip:/name of shared dir mountpoint cifs user= win user name,password=windows password 0 0
all the entries are separated by space or tab for more info read man fstab
mountpoint is the path of the dir you created in step 2 above
