The following line in /etc/fstab mounts on boot for me every time:

//WIN_COMPUTER_NAME/SHARE_NAME  /mnt/mountpoint  smbfs  
password=PASSWORD,uid=UID,gid=GID,username=USERNAME  0  0

Note that my USERNAME and PASSWORD are the same on Kubuntu and Windows.  There 
is a more secure way of protecting the password, but I don't need it.
