can linux automount a shared drive from windows xp?

i can manually mount the drive after i logon everytime but i want it to automount @ logon. i know its gotta be in one of the scripts and ive tried it in the /etx/rc.d/rc/local one and the ~/.bashrc one to no avail. i may have even got the right script but set it up wrong. ive tried the following in both scripts

smbmount //ron/winamp /mnt/mp3

also tried variations like

smbmount -o password=<> //ron/winamp /mnt/mp3
cause the password is blank for now
and
smbmount //ron/winamp /mnt/mp3 -o password=<>

i want it to automount when i logon so i dont have to type it for 5 different shares everytime i need it. please if you know linux HELP ME! im just learning

i still use xp andwindows but if i can learn enough of linux i might change over

You are defenately in the wrong forum! :)
Anyway (from someone who is also just learning at the moment ;)) try putting it somewhere in rc.init instead of rc.d.
Just use the same syntax as when you do it manually. Also "man smbmount" is a good idea. There may be problems (or so I heard) with mounting NTFS volumes. May cause serious problems on both sides. FAT32 works though.
