I think what he wants is for a users volume to be mounted automatically
based on who it was that logged in when the system booted up.  So if I
logged in as pdc when the system booted my pdc volume would mount.  If,
however, you set down at the same machine and logged in as arnold then your
volume, not mine, would automatically mount without user intervention.  I
don't know the answer but I hope that clarifies things.
