Every day I need to connect/mount an externel drive from a linux samba machine.
How can I setup Mac OS X (10.5.8 on a G5) to let him do this automatically after login or boot?

If it is a network share just drag the mounted disk to the Login Items tab of the Accounts System Preference pane under the account of your user. The disk will then be automatically mounted on the next login.

perfect, this works fine –  user19783 Dec 2 '09 at 7:17
    
This has 2 problems: 1) it opens Finder and shows the contents of the network share when the user logs in, and 2) if the share goes away temporarily for any reason while the user is logged in it is never remounted. You can use automator to fix problem 1, but it won't fix 2. Create a script that mounts the drive and use launchd to run it to fix both. To mount a network drive in a script use "mount -t afp afp://@<backup_disk_name>.local/<share_name> /Volumes/<share_name>". –  Samuel Mar 1 at 13:59
