First, thanks to Azral !

The solution is to create a startupitem in /Library/StartupItems/

First of - create a catalog (in this case named "MountStuff" but a name of your choosing chould suffice - rename files/parameters if you change name) containing two files:

File MountStuff containing:

/usr/sbin/shlight '//Storage/DISK 2' /Users/frontrow/Movies/disk -U pcguest -P pcguest 

File StartupParameters.plist containing:

  Description = "MountStuff";
  Provides = ("Mounts");
  Requires = ("Network");
  OrderPreference = "None";

Don't forget to sudo chmod +x MountStuff. (:

And thats about it! Now it mounts my share(s) on startup.
