How to mount smb share with Shell command on Mac OS X Lion?

Hi,

I have backup utility that needs to be run on schedule on client computers. It's called Backuplist+ We make backups to network share. However when network share is not mounted backup is missed. In this utility there is the option to run shell command before backup. So I need to run shell command to mount this smb network share. It would be very good if this shell command will take password from keychain.

I didn't realized that I need not apple script, but automator application, which is not the same thing. I need to run automator application from command line.
