How to copy in a script files to a samba folder?

I have connected my Linux box to a Windows XP PC, and I can access the shared folder at smb://

To copy files I usually open the shared folder in a Konqueror window and drag them in or out.

Now, I would like to automize a backup procedure and put a copy of my backup file to the shared folder.

How do I access a shared folder in a script?

When in a console I say "cd smb://" I get a "No such file or directory" message.

Many thanks

you'll have to mount the smb-fs to somewhere first. since i don't use samba in an unix environment (better go with nfs here) i can't tell you how to do that, but the manpages of samba, smbmount or so.. should give you a hint.
