The  way I found out it works half-way is that I have made a script in
NetworkDispatch folder so that NetworkManager starts netfs service
when eth0 goes UP. The problem is with samba mounts when I reboot that
NetworkManager kills the network first and then looks for commands in
NetworkDispatch folder - and tries to unmount samba shares.

This doesn't work.

Is there a better way under fedora 8 to mount and unmount samba shares
with NetwoekManager. Disabling NetworkManager is not an option.

Any ideas?
