Yes. Isn't that actually earlier in the boot process
than putting something like "mount -at smbfs" in the
"start" section in /etc/init.d/smbfs (which is then
executed when going to runlevel 2 because it is linked
as S11smbfs in /etc/init.d/rc2.d)?

There must be some minor but crucial environment
difference between being anywhere in the boot process
and being logged in which causes mounts as guest to
fail. I would love to find out how to fix it, if

Best regards,
