http://askubuntu.com – I'm trying to automount some drives with smb with fstab entries as such. # auto mount hda shares //hda/DeannasDocs /home/deanna/DeannasServerDocs cifs user=deanna,pasword=** 0 0 //hda/Music /home/deanna/ServerMusic cifs user=deanna,pasword=** 0 0 //hda/Pictures /home/deanna/ServerPhotos cifs user=deanna,pasword=** 0 0 if I click on one of these drives I get an error "only root can mount" If I manually mount with sudo mount -a I'm prompted for a password and they mount just fine. What the heck is going on here? (HowTos)
