[Samba] How to automount windows share?

You might just put the mount command into one of your startup scripts.
For example, you could put this into your network start/stop script. I would
put both the mount and the umount command into the appropriate parts of
that script, so the smb file is unmounted when the network is taken down.

When you do this, keep in mind that the startup scripts don't have much path
information, so, include the full path name to your mount command, just to
be on the safe side.
