I was thinking about this also, one thing I was think about doing is
writing a small script that runs the smbmount command when the system
boots. In fact I got a script that automatically loads smb and nmd from
startup, just put the smbmount command right after those load.

I'm not to famliar with the auto mount daemon, would it take more
resources to use amd other than a line (or two) in a rc.file? Would it be
more secure to use amd?

I know it would work to add the command in the script, but it would be
cool if I could get some freedback on if this would be the best method.
