I was thinking about the best way to ask the same basic question when I noticed your thread.
Let me try to rephrase the question to hopefully get a better answer.
Without having (knowingly) mounted anything, you can use the following syntax in Konqueror
to access that Windows share.
Riley seems to be assuming that once you have done so, Konqueror has left that Windows share mounted somewhere. If so, then the question is where did it leave that mounted?
The real question is how do we access that same share easily from outside Konqueror?

I'll try that again later. I think I tried that already. I'm not on Linux at the moment.
If I'm remembering correctly, I typed mount in a terminal window while Konqueror had a share directory open. I didn't see anything in the mount output that looked like that share. So that would mean Konqueror dismounts and remounts the share for every operation?
I'm testing/using a bunch of different liveCD and liveDVD versions of Linux on several different Windows computers. In most cases, Linux cannot access the local NTFS file system (confused by the partition table, or confused by the IDE port, or confused by the raid, or just confused). In all cases, it can access the LAN. So any data I want to preserve from the test must be written across the LAN to a share on a different computer.
Early in testing Knoppix, I found some convenient GUI method to mount a share so that programs other than Konqueror could see it. Then I forgot what it was and never found it again and never found anything similar in other liveCD versions.
I know there is a command line way to mount a windows share. I've even done it and then forgotten the details. While busy being confused over a dozen other aspects of a partially working liveCD, it's hard to remember the syntax of the right command to create the mount point and mount the windows share. I'll relearn that soon if necessary, but if there is an easier answer (easy like smb: in Konqueror) that would be nicer.
