[Samba] Mounting for non-root users

That works for me! I had a bit of trouble working out the sudoers syntax.
For the record the entry in /etc/sudoers:

leons   ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/usr/sbin/smbmount // /home/leons/home -o credentials\=.credentials\,workgroup\=STAFFAMB\,uid=leons

The command:

sudo /usr/sbin/smbmount // ~/home -o credentials=.credentials,workgroup=STAFFAMB,uid=leons

Thanks for your help,
