Mounting samba shares

I'm trying to mount samba shares onto the file system, but at the moment
i only seem to be able to mount them as root. I've tried changing the
permissions on the mount point and even mounting it on a subdir of my
home directory but mount just keeps telling me that only root can do
this. I've put an entry for the mount in /etc/fstab with the user
option, what have i missed?
I'm using samba 2.0.7 on RedHat 7, help would be much appreciated.
