[Samba] Mounting shares using fstab at bootup

Hi all,

I have changed my workstation fstab file to include 3 shares on the server 
that I want to mount during boot up.  But, I had to include my username and 
password inside the fstab file.  Does anybody have any other ways of doing 
this considering that the fstab file is readable by anybody?

I'm not quite sure if setting the fstab to root readable only is a good idea.  
Does anybody have any ideas on that as well?
