No GUI that I'm aware of, but smbclient (http://killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=2309) should allow you to do something like this:
smbclient -L pc204-134 -I

(I don't know why our screwy network requires us to specify both the hostname with -L and the IP address with -I)

and be presented with a list of servers that you can browse to.

Then, a command like this:
smbclient \\\\my_windows_host\\c$ -I -U my_win_username -W my_domain

[Note that all backslashes are escaped (ie, doubled)]
(again, I don't know why we had to specify the IP addr of my_windows_host)

should start a client session with my_windows_host, where you can do this:

smb: \> dir
to get a remote dir listing

smb: \> pwd
to get the remote working directory name

smb: \> !pwd
to get the local working dir name

smb: \> get somefile
to get a file

and, finally:
smb: \> quit

to do the obvious.
