I just installed Slackware on my laptop, along with the samba client.  However, since I have never tried to connect to a windows network via Linux, I'm not sure how to do it.  There is no "net use" command, or anything of that nature.  If someone can give me some help...

You can use command "mount" to mount the windows share. Then you can get connected to windows shares:

1) Create a directory, for example, winshare in linux
   mkdir winshare

2) mount the windows share in that directoy
   mount -t smbfs -o username=name, password=password //Windows/Share
(The above comment should be in one line, name is the windows user name and password is the user password)

3) change to that directory and you can see the files. Of course, before you do the mount, you should have samba running.

Sorry, the 2) comment should be :

mount -t smbfs -o username=name,password=pwd //Windows/Share /winshare

where name is username and pwd is user password.

mount itself cannot do it, you need smbmount for that (even, depending on you installation and mount version, mount calls smbmount).
Anyway, the smbmount looks like:

  smbmount //Windows/Share /winshare -o username=name,password=pwd

... and dont forget that you might have to specify a NT Domain, which would mean the above should be:
smbmount //Windows/Share /winshare -o username=name,password=pwd,workgroup=DomainnameOrWorkgroup

or

mount -t smbfs -o username=name,password=pwd,workgroup=DomainnameOrWorkgroup //Windows/Share /winshare
