I am running a Ubuntu 12.04 based distro called Linux Lite and i am having an issue where i can get my Windows Shares to mount but after reboot i have to manually run sudo mount -a to mount them again

I am a linux newbie and i am finding this difficult on how to get the shares to stay mounted after a reboot

here is what i have added to my fstab file ( have removed some numbers from my IP for display here)

//192.168.*.**/stuff    /home/server/windowsmounts/stuff        cifs    credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0      0
