mount remote filye system

hi, we've a server here and I was silly enough not to memorize the fstab before re-installing kubuntu. so now I want to mount the server, knowing only its (internal)IP

so what I need to know is the location (first column in fstab) and do I need to know anything else, like, tell my system to memorize my password and auto-login with that.

help appreciated, paddy

What is the remote server - NFS or Samba.

If it is nfs, you need a line like:
serverIP:/path/to/directory   /local/mount/point  nfs     rw,user,noauto  0       0
For Samba, (I think, I don't use samba)
serverIP/directory /local/mount/point smbfs auto,user,username=guest,password=password 0 0
I hope this helps
