Startup script to mount windows shares?

Still a linux newbie, but I'm working hard at it. I'm interesting in a making my red hat 9 system mount a couple of windows shares everytime it boots up. I already have Samba setup, mostly correct, and I have been using Linneighborhood to mount the shares, but this will not mount the shares unless Linneighborhood is run everytime you login, so it doesn't quite help me. Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me a hand? Thanks.

You can create an fstab entry to do it - no scripting required. Take a look at this page of the LQ Wiki:
