    You're going to want to edit fstab and add something similar to the following in your list of drives:

    //server/share /mnt/dir smbfs username=user,password=p@$$w0rd 0 0

    The first part is going to be the host server, second part will be the local mount point, third part is the filesystem (smbfs if it is a windows or samba share) then obviously user name and password.

    Once that has been added, your system will mount it along with the other drives on boot.
