I have set up samba 2.2.3a with winbind to join SuSE linux 7.3 machines
into our NT 4 domain, but would like to be able to set up Linux thin client machines
to allow transparent use of either windows or Linux desktops. To accheve this I need
to be able to access our Home directory shares from both systems, the best way for
us to go at the moment is to find a way of getting linux to automount the users home 
directory on logon. All our users have a share on one of three NT servers which coresponds
to their username. What I would like to do is find some way of on logon /home/(whatever) is
mapped to a smb share of //server/(whatever)$. as we have 1200 user accounts setting this
up needs to be rule based!

What is the best way to proceed?
