Alright chaps. As I have two linux boxes, i want to mount the shares on the other machine. Now these are SMB shares. How do I go about getting all 3 shares to map to the relative /mnt directories on login? I want this to occur for a normal user and not have to use root to mount them, this Unix account is the same as the SMB account credentials on the other machine

If you are using two Linux boxes, then I would suggest you use NFS - It has batter support for permissions etc. You could combine this with NIS (yp) to share users from one machine with the other.

Im not sure of the syntax for adding SMB to fstab, so I cant help there...

You can have commands executed when you log in, in your .bash_profile / .bash_login / .bashrc file
