add smbmount drives to fstab?


Now that I have successfully connected to windows shares on other machines with smbmount, can I add these to the fstab file in the same way I did with accessing the windows partition on this machine?

yup.... just make sure to set the type as smbfs... the syntax should look like this:

//x.x.x.x/smbsharename /mnt/somewhere smbfs username=username,password=password 0 0

Cool? Cool.
