Depends where your windows is. Assuming its on another box, samba should
be able to do it; it can be both client and server. The win box should
be set up to sharing (in this case the win is the samba/netbios server
not the*nix!), for the CLI on your *NIX (samba client in this case) you
can use the smbclient program which is an ftp like interface to samba
shares(beit on a NIX or a Win box). Not sure if this is what you mean.
Not quite. I have samba on FreeBSD and would like to see the windows file on anothe machine on the Lan. I do have FreeBsd on another machine (this one) and I can mount the Windows files even on a FastTrack raid array(1) access, copy & write (if I remember right) files. But how to do the same from the *nix on the Lan?

I don't know cygwin (to be run from the win box I reckon; I think this
is more for when you want an X-in-a-window from a *NIX client onto a
Win box), never tried it.
Personally, I have never needed it as i have postgres & other stuff on the FreeBSD machine. :))
