Does this go in the global entries?

Hello Chris,

this is a WinBlows 9x issue. As far as I can tell, Winblows 9x maps
internally drive Z: for profiles, and when the user interface is
available for use, you don´t see that drive mapped anymore.

Unfortunately, during logon script processing, drive Z: is still
mapped by Windows. I use here "logon drive = X:" in smb.conf
to avoid this problem.
