    Code:
    <machine name and share>  <mount point>  <fs>  <options>  <dump>  <pass>
    //server/share            /mnt/smb       smbfs auto       0       0
    Syntax wise, this is correct. You'll probably have more trouble setting up the options part. For example, I'd use the option "username=administrator" on my for my Win2K share but still, I haven't been able to auto set this thing as you are looking for.

    Currnetly, I'm using smbmount to overcome this problem.
