Using mount.cifs to mount subdirectories in Windows server


We have a Windows server set up to share a disk "Disk1". On our linux box I need to mount the disk to get access to a specific subdirectory (i.e. "//$/some/folder").

Is it possible to mount the folder "folder" directly, or am I stuck with mounting the "Disk1" share and then cd'ing into the folder? I've been told that the former should work, but I'm not sure how to accomplish this..
