how to automatically map a netowrk drive with every boot?

Hi All, Two questions here:
1.) how do you make linux map a netowrk resource into a directory every time it boots up? I have attempted to put this line in my /etc/fstab file but it didn't work for some reason:

//windowsmachine/resource /MP3 smbfs

NOTE: The windowsmachine is Windows 2000 Server, and it requires no password to log in, just a user name "guest".

Can anyone help me here?

2.) Look at 1.) above, how can I make this share availab;e/accessible as READ/WRITE to ALL users!? I tried chmod 777 ut that did NOT work

Please respond! I really want to know!
