    Depends on which type of share it is, are you trying to access windows shares? If so you need to use samba which is a little too complicated to go into here, have a look here for more info.

    If you want to mount shares from another *nix box you can can use nfs, at its simplest it just involves issuing the command - mount ip add/hostname:/sharename but you do need to have permissions setup accordingly and the portmapper service (among others) started. There are also a few security concerns around nfs, as is the same with anything, do a bit of research before going ahead with it - in fact, that advice could aply to (almost) anything - did you try searching on google for "linux networking", you'd be surprised how many articles you would find.
