"transparent" network driver

Hi all, I'm new to SAMBA and I have a question.
I use SAMBA from windows98 clients to access the user homes in Linux.
That works fine.
The problem I have is: is it possible to map a network driver to the
home of the user currently logged on automatically?

I mean, I see the samba shares AS \\SAMBA\username , and if i map a
drive to that when another user logs in (username2) the network drive
still remains mapped to \\SAMBA\username . How can I automatically map
to \\SAMBA\username2 ? (or what is the solution if any?)

Hope I was clear, sorry for bad English

Here is my smb.conf

        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        netbios name = SAMBA
        server string = Samba Server
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        update encrypted = Yes
        null passwords = Yes
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd
        username map = /etc/smbusers
        unix password sync = Yes
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 0
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        os level = 34
        dns proxy = No
        guest account = pcguest

        comment = Home Directories
        path = %H
        valid users = %S
        writeable = Yes
        browseable = No

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No
