    don't mean to commit necromancy on this one but I went for a pretty simple solution for this problem in mounting my smb shares through scripts under kubuntu 8.04 as I was having the same original problem (no messing with wins, config files, etc.)

    I just started using something like this in my scripts...

    IPADDRESS=`nmblookup hostname | tail -n 1 | sed 's/\(.*\..*.\.*.\.*\) .*/\1/'`
    sudo mount -t smbfs //$IPADDRESS/share /path/to/mount/target -o workgroup=WORKGROUP,username=username

    this prompts for a password for protected shares but you can figure out how to put that on the command line (I like to be prompted as opposed to putting passwords in scripts).

    whatever those reasons are - it's hardly relevant anymore.
