In Mac OS X, how do I automatically connect to a remote hard drive on a samba server when machine starts? I normally manually do Finder -> Go -> Connect to server (Command+k) -> type in smb:// -> select partition and directory. Is it possible to have it connected automatically every time the machine starts?

It should be enough to add the volume to your Login Items, which can be found under System Preferences » Accounts.
