    fstab automount smb fails

    I'm trying to automount some drives with smb with fstab entries as such.

    Code:
    # 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

    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    I'm prompted for a password and they mount just fine. What the heck is going on here?

    Of course it was something stupid.

    I copied the syntax fro the mount from offline and it has "pasword" instead of "password". It stood out initially but I thought it was just a Unix foible.
