If you have linux, use samba (smbmount). It is very easy.

If you have solaris its a little more complicated, check this out:

Install Samba or CIFS to the Unix machine. You can either access from Windows or access the Windows folders from Unix. http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/SambaIntro.html or http://www.samba.org/

As everyone stated; this is a straight forward task using samba.

I just wanted to add that you need to make sure the Unix user has sufficient rights on the Windows share. The Unix user will need "modified" right to the share. Is your Windows machine part of a domain?

Then just ask your help desk to do this.
Ask him to  install samba on your unix machine, and ask him to share the folder in your windows driver.
The configuration is very easy for any unix admin. But if you dont have admin privileges, I dont think you have other choices. You just have to "know" that with a samba server configured you can get your desire configuration, just ask your admin to do that.
Again, if the unix admin cant install samba, tell him/her to check this out:
