Hi, I want to mount a samba share as a normal user,
I added the following to /etc/fstab

//sambaserver/homedir        /mnt/sambaserver        smbfs  
noauto,rw,user,username=bla,password=bla,uid=500,gid=500,umask=775    0

when I want to mount as a normal user I get: 
smbmnt must be installed suid root for direct user mounts (500,500)
smbmnt failed: 1

I thougth adding the word user in the /etc/fstab options would be
Does anyone know what I forgot?
