Automount windows shares on os x leopard

By shaun ·
I am running a virtual windows machine through parallels on my macbook pro. What I would like to do is automount a share on the windows machine to my mac at startup. I've done a little googling and found that I should create an auto.smb file and then within auto_master add the mount. My auto.smb file contains the following:

/Users/myusername/myshare -fstype=smbfs /mywinusername:mywinpassword@mywinvm/mywinshare

I added the following line in my /etc/auto_master file:

mywinshare auto.smb

I then did an automount -vc to activate this mount. However when I try to access the mount it puts me in a loop.

Hope someone can help.
