I use Suse, but assume it's the same answer -
you need to have samba installed and then you can use smbmount. If you create a directory /mnt and want to access the shared 'C' from pc 'pcname' then :
smbmount \\\\pcname\\c /mnt
the c drive will then be mounted in /mnt
you can find samba details at
Good luck

You'll need the samba packages for slackware 9.1. There may be several small packages needed to get it going.
Afterwards you could add LinNeighborhood to make for easier access.
