automount samba - windows network neighborhood

how to automatically mount windows/linux samba shares? that is the question...

currently, there're two apps that i know can do this. use only one of them. or if you use both, make sure you use it on different folders.

1. fusesmb quick start:
sudo aptitude install fusesmb
sudo mkdir /mnt/Neighborhood
sudo chown yourusername:fuse /mnt/Neighborhood
fusesmb /mnt/Neighborhood -o allow_other


2. smbnetfs quick start:
sudo aptitude install smbnetfs
sudo mkdir /mnt/Neighborhood
sudo chown yourusername:fuse /mnt/Neighborhood
smbnetfs /mnt/Neighborhood

that is it.
to make it the apps run at startup, you can put it either in your .bashrc or your session manager autostart.
