ah.. I didn ot think of that because I have no other users.. I think a
better solution is to do something like this
make a file  /root/password
chmod it so only root can read and write to it
then do
mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=</root/password ... the rest of
the command
I do not have a box in front  of me but will that take the data in the file
password and place it there?
I'm just curious
