Default smb mounting question

I am really happy that FreeBSD has had SMBFS in userland for several years now. I just have one question with SMB mounts...

The SMB server is a Vista machine that requires username and password for connecting to shares. On Linux you simply add username=foo,password=bar to fstab and it works. FreeBSD complains that the username and password options in fstab are not supported.

How do I login to the SMB server with username and password parameters? I am comfortable with doing it by the CLI if need be but what I would really like is to do it all by fstab.

Thanks in advance.
How many times have you heard a new BSD user say, "What, no runlevels?"
