smbfs in /etc/fstab

I'd like to make my Windows home directory the same as my Linux home
directory, and I'd like it to happen at boot time. Can someone please tell
me if it is possible to use smbmount from within /etc/fstab? If so, what
is the correct syntax?

Right now, I have something like:

servername:/share$ /mountpoint smbfs defaults 0 0

and I think it might work if I can replace "default" with the correct
options. If not, I'll probably end up putting a line in rc.local (ugh).
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
