Thanks for your comment. You're right, but the problem arises with your
solution is that all users are using the CentOS machine login locally
with the same user. So, correct me if I'm wrong, I think I can not mount
the volume for each user without the others have access.

On the other hand, what maneges SMB passwords to tell don't remember it?
¿PAM, smbclient/smbpasswd, gnome-vfs?
