Stupid question: how to mount a network drive


I'm trying to do something I did before, but for the life of me I can't remember how to do it.

I'm connecting to my server on a laptop running SUSE 10.1 through SAMBA. I want to mount the network drive automatically at boot-up, but I can't remember how to do it. I know it's really simple, but I can't find the solution anywhere. Can someone gimme a hand?

to mount it automatically, you need to add an entry to fstab, for example, something like:

Code:
//host/share   /mnt/directory   smbfs    credentials=/root/creds,noatime,rw   0   0
(or whatever options, etc.)
