If it's the same network share every time, you can just make an alias 
to it (manually) from the finder, and then os.system('open myalias') 
whenever you want it to be mounted.  Of course, this will open a window 
in the finder, but it is a quick&dirty way to do it.

The real question is why you're trying to do it, and in what kind of situation.
