You could use the smbclient to access the samba file on the samba server. Or you could try another service like NFS? I would just use ssh unless you need to mount filesystems.

May export/mount the same home dirs as NFS shares from linux to linux;
may also mount type smb option password server:/share samba to linux;
not sure of exact command line or additions needed to automount or fstab.
