Finding a computer in a Windows network.

I have a Linux (Slack 10.2) machine connected to a Windows network. The computer I want to get to is within domain "domain1".

So, my question is, how do I go about accessing the shared files on this computer?

if you have samba installed you should be able to connect to the share as follows:
mount -t smbfs -o username=win_user,password=win_pass,workgroup=domain //win_computer/share /mnt/somewhere
