Mounting SMB filesystems at boot time

The following in my fstab works for me (with no extra settings in rc.conf or 

//media/files           /drives/media/files             smbfs   
rw,-I=,-N,-u=x      0 0

Since you say mount -a works, it sounds likely you have something in your 
fstab preventing auto mounting (noauto??), or perhaps some error is being 
generated at boot time (check /var/log/messages?). Maybe if you post your 
fstab someone will spot something.
