Apple Mac OSX, Commandline Eject

A previous nugget detailed an issue I have wih SMB and AFP mounts in Leopard not showing on the desktop, and how to get to them usng symlinks through /Volumes.

So if you cannot see them n the desktop, how to gracefully unmount / eject them.

One way is to use a commandline:

umount /Volumes/SMB_Mount

You should not use this to unmount an actual device eg USB drive!
