I'll have a look round the link you sent. Ta.
as far as i can see, this should work with no problems. it does work on my dapper install, but i haven't tested it on hardy yet.

OK I have done the credentials file and edited the fstab
When I call:
sudo mount -a
I get an error unless I call as root:
echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled
from the terminal first.
Then when I call
sudo mount -a
the drive is mounted
Appreciate tips on how to automatically disable unix extensions on boot!

okay ... almost done.

now edit /etc/rc.local like so:
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
edit the file so it looks like this:
#!/bin/sh -e
# rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
# By default this script does nothing.

echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled
mount -a
exit 0
reboot, and your share will be mounted automatically.
