Hi there...
I want to mount a windows share automatically in fstab but I get an error

When I try: mount -t smbfs //MSWinSMBServer/share /mnt/share, it works, 
and even when I pass options like,

mount -t smbfs -o 

then, when asked, I type password...

The problem is when I do this in my fstab...

here's the line:

//MSWinSMBServer    /mnt/share    smbfs    noauto,user    0    0

I even tried,

//MSWinSMBServer    /mnt/share    smbfs    
noauto,user,credentials=/home/bcochofel/.smbpassword    0    0
//MSWinSMBServer    /mnt/share    smbfs    
   0    0

but I get always this error:

mount error: Invalid argument
Please refer to the smb...
smbmnt failed: 255

What is wrong in my fstab?
