Are you manually mounting the Windows network? or just browsing thru Nautilus?

If you are using Nautilus then I think you will find your mount by
navigating to ~/.gvfs
In other words, mount the Windows network share using Nautilus as you
would normally, then
in pcman or Gnome Commander or whatever go to ~/.gvfs

You may want to look at Unison for this task as well,  I haven't used
it, but it often comes up as a solution.
