} Yes, make the line as follows:
} //WILLEM-JAN/muziek /muziek smbfs ro,uid=1000,gid=1000,username=XXXXX,password=XXXXX
} But, this does take a security issue with it. Your password is readable
} in your fstab.

This can be avoided by using a credentials file, e.g.:

//WILLEM-JAN/muziek /muziek smbfs ro,uid=1000,gid=1000,credentials=/usr/etc/credentials/muziek

This requires that the file /usr/etc/credentials/muziek contains:

username = XXXXXX
password = XXXXXX

...but the file and, indeed, the credentials directory can be root-only
