Mounting a Remote Windows Drive

Is there a way to mount a Windows C: drive onto a seperate Linux Fendora Core 2 Box. Both are connected to a LAN, but the IT guys are barking about not supporting Samba. I am trying to find a go around. I tried the FTP way of transferring files, but mounting a drive from my windows machine would be so much easier. Any suggestions would be greatly apperciated...
Thanks in advance...

Samba is typically the way you would do this. Hmmm. I suppose you could install an ssh server on the windows machine in question and then use sshfs to mount it.

Is there any particular reason samba doesn't work? If you share the C drive, you should be able to pass a username and password to samba for logging into the box (maybe the box's admin account?).
