Nautilus supports SMB protocol (this protocol is used to get access to windows shares). But to be able to get access to them from other applications you have to mount those shares into your root file system. I can not give you direct commands/ways to do so, 'cause I have no windows shares to try this on recent Ubuntus. So, go googling and have a look at:

P.S. Nautilus is a filemanager that you use in Ubuntu. VFS is a special way to let some applications (as, for example, Nautilus and some others) to get access to windows shares.
