Samba client is what you need to configure. The shortened name for it is smbclient. You can issue a whole string to mount the desired shares from the command line, or you can try doing it from the gui with the smb:\\computer\share. Just make sure you have smbclient installed, and you may need to go into the configuration of samba and make sure you have the right domain/workgroup information.
