Mac os x lion automount smb

I seems that automount is ignoring all my attempts to set uid or gid for the mount and its always mounted as root:wheel.

Howto automount network shares under OSX

I went through several threads that deal with that and found no solution anywhere so I tried using Automator with Applescript, where I used a command to Finder app that mounted drive for me, but it always asks for credentials so it's no use for me either. Can anyone please provide working solution that mounts smb drive on OSx that's accessible for other users than root and works in headless mode so it does not require any user to log in?

Also please note that the "soft" option is quite important. In case the resource is not available network down or else without it something in the OS may get stuck trying to connect to the resource. Here is a work-around created by Apple folks which essentially 'duct-tapes' a way thru it. TLDR version: 1. Listen now.

Hi Sengtui,thank you very much for your answer, I tested it and it works, undoubtedly.

With the features they've removed and now this, I'm tempted to go back to Snow Leopard. You just saved my mac from being influenced with a sledgehammer.
