smbclient //share/name -U username
you'll be prompted for a password whether there is one or not. just press enter...
smbclient --help
or see
man smbmount for another option that is probably better for you.

I am using slack 9.1 and did not install samba. Do I have to install samba to get smbclient? Thanks

You need to have the SMB filesystem but not Samba. Just try it by typing 'smbclient'. If you get the help menu, you're good!

yeah, i do believe you will need the smbclient to do this, also, your going to need to have ntfs patched to your kernel to read the files once you do connect.

It is not necessary to have NTFS suport compiled into the kernel because with a network share smb is the interface.

With Redhat and Mandrake smbclient stuff is in a different package from the samba server. I don't know how Slack does it.
