auto mount network drive


Having trouble with this, tried to use fstab

network drive is //WD-Netcenter/Netdrive has no username or password
mountpoint file exists /mnt/Netdrive

from konsole mount -t smbfs //WD-Netcenter/Netdrive /mnt/Netdrive prompts for password, can just enter return and it mounts.

Also from Konsole mount -t smbfs //WD-Netcenter/Netdrive /mnt/Netdrive -o password=
This works without prompting for password

Now in fstab //WD-Netcenter/Netdrive /mnt/Netdrive smbfs password= 0 0 does not work

Need help.

---------------------
//WD-Netcenter/Netdrive /mnt/Netdrive smbfs username=windowsuserename,password=windowspassword 0 0
