 From the samba.org page on SMBMOUNT:


     specifies the username to connect as. If this is not given, then 
the environment variable USER is used. This option can also take the 
form "user%password" or "user/workgroup" or "user/workgroup%password" to 
allow the password and workgroup to be specified as part of the username.

     specifies the SMB password. If this option is not given then the 
environment variable PASSWD is used. If it can find no password smbmount 
will prompt for a passeword, unless the guest option is given.

Looks promising.
