No Problem, we all started ones.

You cannot use %H in a script file! %H is a samba isue, not a 
windows script isue. A startup script is actually a batch file with a 
number of commands. In you case 'net use k: %H' This simply will 
not wotk because %H will not be substituted. If you want to map 
drive K to a home directory of the user use:
Where \\server is the server that hold's the users profile name (most 
of the times the PDC. Homes is the name of the directory of the 
user. \\server\<homes> and \\server\<username> is the same dir.

'net use k: \\server\homes'

Hopefully this will clear thinks up.
