    SMB shares can be made to remount on boot by adding a line to fstab the
    in a similar to adding lines for nfs shares to make them survive a

    //pc001/mp3s /import/pc001/mp3s smbfs
    owner>,fmask=600,dmask=700 0 0

    where the /etc/auth.smb is a root owned file chmoded 400 and contains
    the lines:

    username=<your username>
    password=<your password>

    Although this has the obvious problems of:
    1.) everything is owned by a preset owner.
    2.) acl's are ignored for the most part.
