Automatically mounting user's home directory

Hello list,

well, I managed to set up Samba 2.07 to pass on a startup script to our Win
9x clients during logon. Scripts execute, shares are mounting.

I have run into a dead end with the home directory however.

I want to mount \\servername\home\username to a drive letter.

Does Win9x pass on the username in a variable, that can be used in a logon

I've tried all varieties e.g. "net use H: \\servername\%u", etc...

Or maybe it's not possible at all?

Cheers from Munich,
