Here is an example command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=pass "//ComputerName/My Music" /mnt/mymusic

One more note, whenever you have a command that has a space in the options, using quotes " " between the option in question will always work - example:

$ cd "C:\Windows\Program Files"

There is also a proggie called xsmbrowser you can find it here

this allows you to do the mounting just like what lunardreamr showed but in the GUI environment.
