Mounting CIFS at boot

Hi chaps,

I'm having trouble getting a CIFS share on a NAS box mounted on a ubuntu server at boot up. I mount it fine using mount.cifs in an SSH session, and in my fstab I have;

// /media/nas cifs guest,allow_other

However, come boot up, the share isnt mounted and data ends up in the /media/nas folder rather than the NAS share.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong ?
