cannot mount CIFS share from non-root


I am trying to mount a samba share defined in fstab:

// /mnt/dlink cifs noauto,noexec,nosuid,rw,sync,user,username=linux,p assword=linux 0 0

the mount point is :
[root@localhost mnt]# ll /mnt/
total 8
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 Jul 11 17:42 dlink

but when I try to mount it I get:

[piero@localhost ~]$ mount /mnt/dlink/
mount error 1 = Operation not permitted
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

it works fine when i am root.

what could it be?
