Hello All.

I'm using the credentials=<filename> option in fstab for mounting a
smbfs on a Linux box.  It all works really well from the command line,
but when I try reboot, the smbfs won't mount because its now looking for
the credentials file.  Where do I put it so it will be found when
reading fstab during the boot process?
