Thwe way to do it is to use the root preexec & root postexec commands to 
run a script which will dynamically generate the logon script batch file 
before sending it down to the client.  There is a sample at 
http://www.phonax.com, and in Richard Sharpe's Samba book (I think it is a 
QUE book).  You could also google for it, too.
