Connecting to samba server from unix command line

Hi, I am trying to connect to a samba server from my unix command line. I am using Ubuntu and I can access the server from the GUI, but I need to write a script to automate a backup. Does anyone know how to do a cd into a smb drive from the unix command line?

Thanks,
Eric

Ubuntu is Linux, not Unix. Go to one of those (Ubuntu) forums... might have better luck there.

I figured it out.

smbclient or smbmount works perfectly.
