What do you mean by this? I really do not understand. A few days 
ago I compiled samba-2.2.5. There is a configure option to also 
compile smbmount.

This may cause problems. At startup "mount -a" is called before 
network is up (at least in some distributions). So better add the 
"noauto"-option and mount the specific share later (after network 
coming up) by a separate skript.
Quick and dirty way for KDE-users: add desktop icon of type "drive" 
pointing to this fstab entry.
