Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you *have* to login to the 95
workstation (ie enter a user/pass at the windows login screen and not
press cancel) before 95 will run the login script?  I've never seen 95 run
the login script without the user first logging in.

Also, the login script commands are carried out on the local workstation,
not on the samba server so how are they running as 'nobody'?

All I did on my LAN was configure samba to do the domain login and login
script thing, created a .bat file in the netlogon share with the following
types of entries "net use \\server\public f:". When I login the script
runs locally and all drives get mapped :)

Lemme know if you have any further questions.
