[Rick's samba advice]
I would like to mount it automatically.
So, is it possible to put those lines into /etc/fstab as follows ?

//server/share /mountpoint cifs user=workgroup/username%password 0 0


of course, but following up on Rick's point:
/etc/fstab is readable by all.

I would do this instead:

//server/share /mountpoint cifs domain=workgroup,credentials=/root/samba.cred 0 0

and in the /root/samba.cred file you would have
username=bob
password=password

or something like that.

This file does not have to be in /root, but it should be readable only by root.
