mounting various large hard disks

Some days back we'd mounted a 250 GB hd on developer on the linux machines using samba - the fstab entry is
//path/to_share /path/to/mount/folder smbfs rw,credentials=/path/to/credentials.txt,uid=500,gid=500 0 0
where the uid and the gid are the user and group ids of the user who needs rw access to the share. For finding a user's uid and gid, the command is
id username

On our Jo'berg server, the hard disk is on the same machine, so the fstab entry for mounting it is given in a previous post.
