Ahh...it works great when using mount instead of smbmount.  Thanks!  I can't
believe I overlooked that.

Next questions:

Is there a way that I can have this share mounted during login without
prompting for a password and still keep the share secure to the user?  After
all, the user did just enter their password during login.  Perhaps I could
add something to .bashrc?  Unfortunately, I must do this without exposing
the user's password as plain text in any form.  BTW, does smbmount encrypt
the password?
