Mounting a Samba Drive


What is the proper way to auto mount a samba drive at boot up? With fstab or is there another way? and what is the syntax for it in fstab if that works, having some troubles.

all file systems should be set up in fstab. for smb i *think* the syntax is

//server/share /mnt/point smb defaults 0 0

but don't quote me on that. also check the manpage for fstab for more details

Also please do not bump threads after such a short period of time, that was less than two hours, and is just rude.... AND it didn't work either, as you posted that since i last updated my search list.

In case anyone is wondering, I got it working with the following:

//server/share /mnt/point smbfs defaults,user,auto,username=user,password=pass 0 0
