W2K Services connecting to Samba Share

We are running an HP/UX 11.0 server that is sharing out a filesystem. We
used to share it out via NFS and have NFS NT clients map this drive and then
perform a network share of it. This allows our application (which runs as
an NT/W2K Service) to see this drive and use it.
With Samba, I was able to create a batch file that I could run as a service
to perform the drive mapping, but because I am unable to share this mapping,
the application (still running as a service) is unable to see this drive.
This is running on a W2K Server now, and since our applications run as a
service, they do not require a user logged into the server. However, it
appears as though Samba requires a user to login before it will map this
drive. I can force the map via a batch file running as a service (I assume,
since I did this in NT I should be able to do it in W2K), but how can I
share this resource so that my services can see this?
