Automount Samba share during boot. This is very easy to accomplish in Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution.

Then, install the
smbfs package if you dont already have it:
sudo apt-get install smbfs

SAMBASERVER is the domain name, hostname or ip address of the Samba server.
ShareName is the name of the samba share (can be found in
/etc/samba/smb.conf file on the server).

Here is an example:
\\192.168.1.100movies /media/movies smbfs user=ryan,passwd=xXxXxXxXxXx 0 0
Note that everything is in a single line. "192.168.1.100" can also be mysambaserver.com if you have domain name setup.
I hope it works for you. Good luck!.
