How to mount remote Windows files under Linux?

To mount a Windows shared directory via the command line:
smbmount //computername/shared /mnt/mount_point -o username=user
You can browse Windows shares in KDE by using Konqueror.
In the location field, type something like this in order to connect to a windows PC.
