Well, I finally solved my problem of not being able to run executables
on a Win95 client from a samba share. At the DOS prompt, I had to issue...
C:> net use X: \\SAMBASERVER\SHARE
and then go through My_Computer to the X: drive. Evidently the executables
were looking for data files that were not in the path. If I add this to
a logon script, setting up this (and others) drive would be automated.
I know that I can setup a logon script for each user by adding...
logon script = %U.bat
into smb.conf, where user1.bat might contain the following...
net use X: \\SAMBASERVER\user1
net use P: \\SAMBASERVER\public
that would setup the two drives X and P. However, this would mean I
need to create a logon script for each user. Since only the home share
would change for each user (user1 in the example), is there a way to
setup one logon script for everyone that would automatically factor in
the user's particular home share?
