    In Tiger, I was able to mount a SMB share in the finder and it would be displayed under the "Devices" section. With Leopard, I cant get this to work. Leopard is much easier to browse network shares on my Windows machine under the "Shared" section, but I would still like to have certain folder mounted all the time, preferably on startup.

    I never did find a solution. I just have to goto the Shared icon in Finder each time I want to access the network computer. If anyone knows how to get the drive to show up by itself, it would save me a couple of mouse clicks.

    once you got the share mounted, go to system preference -> Users -> login items. just check the mount as a startup item.
    sorry, i'm not currently working on my iMac so i cannot be more precise...
    bye

    You could:

    - Enable "Show Connected Servers" in the Finder Preferences.
    - Connect to a Share on your Windows Server.
    - Create an Alias of that Connection.

    After the next reboot, double clicking on that Alias should reconnect you to the server.

    If you want it to automatically connect to the shared drive make an alias of the drive and then go to the accounts section in system preferences. Then go to your account then go to login items. Just drop the alias in there are the shared drive should mount every time.
