Yes, you can do this. I do it on a daily basis. The mount command seems to vary a little between samba versions, but with RedHat 6.1, the command you want would be:
'smboumnt /computername/sharename /local-directory', where local-directory  is any empty local directory on your machine.

The linux smb-howto has some useful info, althought it tells you nothing about the smbmount command.

Hope that helps a little.

1. Make sure both machines are using the same workgroup, and that both hostnames are identified in hosts and lmhosts on both machines.  
2. Make sure file and print sharing is enabled on the Windows machine.
3. Share your resource (right-click, sharing...)
4. Then use smbmount command.
