So I added the share to fstab, and then I ran into the rather infamous:
This program is not installed setuid root - "user" CIFS mounts not supported.
So I chmod u+s /sbin/mount.cifs so I can run mount as non-root user.
Is there a better solution? It's a bit of a pain having to add all of my shares to fstab, there are about a dozen or so that I connect to from time to time.
