You can use it just like smbmount... Here's the sample /etc/fstab:
Code:
//windows_machine/share_name  /mount_point cifs rw,noauto

I don't have my /etc/fstab here, but I believe I added the keyword "user" so it looked like "rw,auto,user".

If you read the man page, man mount.cifs, near the bottom it tells you that it can only be done if you install the setuid option.

I tried this also and here was the result.

[jeff@jeffserver ~]$ mount -t cifs //192.168.0.53/downloads /mnt/kids -o setuid
mount: only root can do that
[jeff@jeffserver ~]$ mount -t cifs //192.168.0.53/downloads /mnt/kids -o setuid=jeff
mount: only root can do that
[jeff@jeffserver ~]$ mount -t cifs //192.168.0.53/downloads /mnt/kids -o setuid,defaults
mount: only root can do that

I suspect that linneighborhood will overcome this, but I haven't tried that yet. Yes in old smbmount, you could mount with regular user by issing the "users" option.
