I have wondered why I have to go back and find my SMB links on a Mac but in Windows I just right click and map network drive and that is it. by default it finds those drives again at startup. Also my windows machine tells me the free space on said SMB shares, Oddly OSX which is Unix talking to a Linux box does not. strange that Windows talking to a Linux machine gets that data.
you can mount as many SMB volumes you want at login by adding them to the login items for your username on your account. I've been dong that for awhile now. Just mount the volume the first time, then drag it into the "login items" screen and it will work from that point forward.
