Mounting samba shares at bootup


Good day...

I'm using ubuntu 10.04 (gnome) - at some point, I had manually mounted a samba share on the home fileserver,

mount -t cifs //homeserver/sharename /serverfiles

It now boots up automatically every time, which is definitely convenient but I don't know how it's being done. I'm going to be mounting the same share using sshfs when I'm away so I'd like to know how it works. When I googlify this, there is mention of altering fstab (which has not been done) or gnome-mount (which does not seem to be it). There is nothing in preferences/startup applications, what is the automounting mechanism being used?

Thanks ia...

If you want to mount partition at boot time you can add entry in /etc/fstab file.

Code:
//homeserver/sharename /serverfiles   smbfs   defaults 0 0
Or you can use autofs filesys to mount partition at demand

Configure Autofs
