Hi all...
Maybe a lot of you knows it, but I had to google a lot to discover how to mount a samba share with spaces in it
If the share is "called like (this)" you have to insert in the fstab file a row like this

//server_name/called\040like\040(this) /mnt/Server smbfs noauto,user,users,credentials=/etc/samba/auto_srv 0 0

It seems that you don't need escape characters for the brackets but you have to substitute the spaces whit the code \040.

Hope it helps someone ;-)
