There is a way to achieve this:

Thanks once again

My original question was:

Hi Gurus,

I have Sun Solaris 8 running Samba version 2.2.8. I need to mount a
Share from Windows 2000 Server to Solaris 8 box. So far was just sharing
file system from Solaris onto windows but now I have request to do it
other way. I need to mount Windows share onto Solaris 8.

I don't think Solaris has smbfs support. I did smbclient and was able to
see the share on Windows box but not sure how to mount the same. The
Samba installed on my box doesn't have smbmount command. Does anyone has
experience mounting Windows Share on Solaris?

Any Help is greatly appreciated.
