    Forgive me if I'm doing this the hard way, but I'm new to OS X and I'm an old school BSD guy...

    I have mounted a samba share via mount_smbfs to /Volumes/some_dir. How can I make this show up in Finder?

    I tried using the "Connect to server...," but that just failed (probably because I'm in a different subnet and will not/can not use the samba server as a WINs server). Yes, I tried by IP address not hostname. But reguardless, it works fine when I do "sudo mount_smbfs -U <username> //ip.address/share /path/to/mount" from the command line... so I just want to get it to show up in finder now that its mounted...

    In the finder you can use the go-to-folder menu opition to go to the path you mounted it at. Or in the Terminal type

    open /path/to/mount
