I'm mounting a windows2000 share on a linux box of mine and have have
trouble using workgroup and credentials together on the fstab line.  How do
I use the credentials option to mount a share in a different workgroup
withing the fstab?

This works:
//win1/share1  /net_shares smbfs
workgroup=agroup,username=auser,password=apass 0 0

This does not:
//win1/share1  /net_shares smbfs workgroup=agroup,credentials=/secret 0 0

I've also added /workgroup to the username value within the credentials but
no luck.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
