Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

fstab is a "suck-ass" way to mount network drives, who's presence you can never quite guarentee. i'd very very strongly suggest you look over autofs which can mount defined locations on access, not on boot. as such you're much less likely to have filesystems hanging on the remote machien going awol etc...
I'd prefer to have access through fstab, particularly for music.
autofs is more for mounting when needed, isn't it?
You're saying that the filesystems (rather than the access) would hang at times? That makes sense, similar to shares that are removed yet linger in network places (windows)? But, if mounted properly (with correct permissions set), wouldn't that lesson a possibility?
read up on autofs, the use is absolutely no different, you will always see fiels in the right place when you look for them, whether they are msuic or films or anything.
if you mount a network file system, if that network file system becomes unreachable for some reason, then the client system often hangs whilst it tries and tries to reach that remote node, which has been stolen and chucked in the back of dodgy pete's van. if you use autofs then when you aren't directly using it, the connection is unmounted, so when it's stolen, the kernel on your system doesn't still think it's there, so there's no problem, other than the theft report to the police.
