10.5: Automount Samba shares in leopard
Authored by: innate on Jan 23, '08 08:45:02AM

It sounds like you're on a company network.

In that case you probably don't want to mount the shares at boot time, but rather when she logs in. That's easy to set up: first, mount the shares that she will be using. Then go to the Accounts pane in System Preferences. Open the Login Items tab and drag any mounted shares into Login Items. They'll be automounted when she logs in.

The main tip was about mounting shares at boot time. That works great on a small network, but you have to use "guest" mode (no passwords) or encode the password into your mount command -- because you're mounting the drive before you get to type your user name and password. On a corporate network that would be unusual and/or forbidden. You mount the shares when you login, and it can use your established user and password credentials.
