You are on the right track; it took me a while to figure this one out too. You've got your /etc/fstab file set up correctly. This is how the line for me looks, it's just like yours. //[EMAIL PROTECTED]/SHARE /mnt/chaos smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 To specify your username and password for the mount, you should create /etc/nsmb.conf the syntax for this file is shown in /usr/share/examples/smbfs/dot.nsmbrc Here is an example from my machine: #nsmb.conf [CHAOS] addr=10.0.3.3 [CHAOS:EDWARD] password=XXXXXXXXX Finally, to mount on bootup, create a file in /usr/local/etc/rc.d with the following contents (or something similar; you probably didn't name your share CHAOS): [EMAIL PROTECTED] more /usr/local/etc/rc.d/010.chaos.sh #! /bin/sh case "$1" in start) echo " Mounting CHAOS..." mount /mnt/CHAOS &>2 ;; stop) echo " Unmounting CHAOS..." umount /mnt/CHAOS &>2 ;; esac Also, I make sure my /etc/nsmb.conf file is owned by root and chmod'ed 600 because it contains a password in plaintext. Don't forget to make sure that your file in /usr/local/etc/rc.d is chmodded at least 700 so that it's executable by, at the very least, the owner (should be root). I hope this is clear enough to make some sense to you.
