[mythtv-users] XBOX Frontend question (actually a debian question!)

Sorry to trouble everyone,

 Thanks to all of your help I have got a wonderful MythTV setup
working which my wife and I absolutely adore. Just a few more little
bugs to sort out and everything will be perfect. I have been putting
it off, so I have decided to post these two messages in an attempt to
seek out the answers to the last few remaining bugs.

(1) XBOX Frontend (Xebian) but actually a debian question

I am mounting a Samba share of my "other videos" from my Windows box.
Unfortunately my share name has a space in it which is preventing me
from getting it to work in fstab (unless someone has an idea there.) I
can get it working fine from a manual SMBMOUNT.

My question is, where can I put this SMBMOUNT so that it is run
automatically on reboot? I don't know enough about Linux to find an
autoexec.bat, and I am worried that even if I put it somewhere that it
will get run before the Samba Daemon is loaded. I have tried putting
it in the fluxbox.sh script I found in the mythtv directory, but no
such luck (that and it didn't look much like a batch file.)

Any ideas on how to get this smbmount to run on reboot? Where should it go?

I should also let you know what I am running. Fedora Core 4 Backend
with a Haupauge 500 and an XBOX Frontend.

Thank you again and I hope someone out there can help!
