mapping NT drives to samba shares question

I still cant get on the samba@ mailing list so I'm posting here.

Running samba 1.9.18p4 on linux. Let's say the machine is called "test"

I have shares in my smb.conf configured as follows. (example)

   force group = excell
   comment = Web stuff
   path = /servers/www/sites/
   valid users = webtech
   public = no
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   force create mode = 750
   create mask = 0750
   directory mask = 0750
;   fake oplocks = yes 
   short preserve case = yes
   preserve case = yes

this works all fine and dandy, shows up as a share under the computer
"test" in Network Neighborhood. and I can do this with the rest of my
shares/web sites

my problem is that i can map a drive to the root machine. for someone to
copy a file to say excelldent (from above) they have to map a drive to
each share.

Is there a map to map a drive letter to the root machine. Or even make a
dummy share that i can map a drive to, and put all my real shares
underneath that dummy share.
