Hi all

I was wondering if it is at all possible to have a users folder 
mapped when a user logs onto the server. I have a student lab here 
with 30 machine and have 400 users, they are connecting to a Linux 
server. We have given each user a space of 3Mb on the server so they 
can store their work on. I can creat a shortcut to the server so they 
can access it by double clicking on the shortcut. The problem with 
this is that if the user is using an application they cant see the 
shortcut and thus cant save to the folder. If the users folder is 
mapped than all works well (I have tested this by mapping a users 
folder and logging in again as the same user. We have lab security 
software on the machines as we dont want them to save onto the 
computer at all. I have mapped the group folder so we can distribute 
work to the users that way but am stuck with how I can get each users 
folder to be mapped when they log on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance
