hello,

i encountered this experience with placing auto mountable smbfs in
/etc/fstab

if this is the case try the solution:

1) place a noauto option in your /etc/fstab smbfs entry

2) mount network shares using /etc/rc.local
if your network share is to be mounted to /mnt/shared then within /etc/rc.local
place

mount /mnt/shared

the mount command will further check fstab for correct mount options

Placing it in /etc/rc.local ensures that all modules are loaded before
mounting the network share.

Hope this helps....
