cant seem to mount a network drive on boot up


I want to mount a network drive on boot up however it doesnt seem to work. this is what I have added to the fstab file:

Code:
//192.168.1.191/Kranich_TC /mnt/TC    cifs    username=kranich\ family,password=xxxxx 0 0
I have tried several other ways people have posted they have done it, however none seem to work.

thanx for your help

oh and just so that you know, I can mount this drive manually using
Quote:
mount -t cifs //192.168.1.191/Kranich_TC /mnt/TC -o username=kranich\ family,password=xxxx
and that works every time but I want it to be mounted every time I boot. I am wanting to do scheduled backups and I dont want that interrupted by a re-boot of the system.

thanx

ok so for anyone who didnt know this, the problem was that in the username I used the Terminals version of a space. a back slash and then a space like this "\ " but in the fstab you have to do it differently. the code for a space is "\040" there is a space in the username for the mount and so once I changed the space from "\ " to "\040" the mount worked perfect.
