Mounting Network Drives

I'm on a PowerBook,
I go between two networks (home / studio),
I have other computers at both places (both Macs and PCs) I'd like to connect to - multiple computers, multiple drives at each location.

Manually going to Go / Connect and mount each network drive manually is getting old QUICK!
Don't like Browsing to them as it does not mount the drives in Finder like Go/Connect does - and it also got old.

Is there a way I can mount the drives via the command line (terminal)? Or some other solution?

I rather find a command line solution to this, as I can then make a bash script to run from the terminal to mount all the drives in one network area in one shot.

TIA

YEAH!
Kinda...

It does not show up in Finder.

But I can work with that as far as my backups go and whatnot.

But, is there a way to have it show up in Finder?

Thanks!
