Question How can I do an automated Read/Write SMB mount for a normal user?

How can I do an automated Read/Write SMB mount for a normal user? I can mount the SMB share via SU but not as the normal user so they wind up with READ access (unlike the root account)... and the mount doesn't stay between reboots. The SMB share is on a Win2000 server. Thanks in advance for any help. :-)

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

The easiest way would be to set it up in
/etc/fstab, setting the options to either a) mount it on boot,
and give it a gid that allows normal users to write as well, or
b) make it user/users mountable.

Please use the search-feature if you're not sure how to go
about fstab entries for SMB shares.
