Because "Windows" does not conform to standards, you have to use
mount_smbfs. As far as I understood, it doesn't even matter which
file system is on the "Windows" disk.
I will give an example.
First, set up those in your /etc/fstab (makes things more easy):
//Administrator at NTWS2KXX/a$ /smb/a smbfs rw,noauto 0 0
//Administrator at NTWS2KXX/c$ /smb/c smbfs rw,noauto 0 0
//Administrator at NTWS2KXX/d$ /smb/d smbfs rw,noauto 0 0
//Administrator at NTWS2KXX/e$ /smb/e smbfs rw,noauto 0 0
//Administrator at NTWS2KXX/f$ /smb/f smbfs rw,noauto 0 0
Then, make /etc/nsmb.conf look like this:
You can then simply issue
# mount /smb/c
You can check out manpages for:
Then, I'm sure, how you can add a directory name as you mentioned
above (\backups). I think that's possible, too.
