Seeing Windows Drive Under Linux

I using RH Linux 6.1.  Our work place has a windows NT server with some shared drives.  Is there a way I can gain access to those shared drives on my Linux box.  I have install Samba and being able to set it up so that the NT server can see my Linux, but I can't see the drive on the NT server using my Linux.  Thanks!

I have connected to my server using the SMBCLIENT command.

from linux console:

"smbclient -L ntserveripaddress -U administrator" (Enter)
(This results in a password promt.  Type the password for your NT administrator account.  You now have a FTP-like interface to get and put files... Try "smbclient|more" for parms and "man smbclient" for examples)

Can you set up an administrator equivalent account in NT so that someone can connect to it without being an administrator?

Have not tried it, but I'll test this next time I'm in my lab!
