    You mount the shares:
    mount -t smbfs //computer/share /mnt/folder

    I think...

    Just 'mount //computername/share /mnt/share' is enough.

    Open up a terminal window in linux, cd /mnt then mkdir share

    on the windows machine, hit WinKey + Pause then click onto the computer name tab and see what is described as the "Full computer name" (we'll use "box" for the example)
    now say you've got a folder shared called "images" go back to the linux console and type

    mount //box/images /mnt/share

    then cd /mnt/share and issue the ls command (with whatever paramaters you require)

    i think thats what they mean... i've never networked win + linux :)
