I managed to get autofs successfully working on a Linux server to a 
windows machine.  Now that server is running FreeBSD and I attempted 
to get automount to do the same as I had with autofs.  I figured I 
should be able to use 'command' with mount_smbfs but neither 
Automount or mount_smbfs seems happy with that arrangement.  I can 
manually mount the Windows shares no problem.

Thanks for your offer of help though.
