Initialization Question.

I would like to know were I need to set up a command to perform
this command when linux boots up:

smbmount //other_computer/share /mnt/share

I think it is in /ect somewhere. Please help if you can, this one question will answer many things for me.

A quick and dirty answer will suffice.

So to say, it is /etc/rc.d directory, the best place to put it is in /etc/rc.d/rc.local file, it runs after all initiallization scripts were run.

If you have smb support in kernel you can try to add it to /etc/fstab (in this case, of course, you don't use smbmount).

I addeded into the the /etc/rc.d directory in rc.local file and it seems to work well. Except each time on boot it asks for network password to access the shared resource. How do I add the password to the smbmount command?

smbmount //other_computer/share /mnt/share

So that it inputs the password right after this command is acknowledged.

Many thanks.
