On my Windows XP and 200 boxes the shares that I have mapped in a login
script have their descriptions set to the following:
downloads on 'Samba Sever 2.2.6pre2' (M:)
This would be fine if I had set  server string = Samba Server %v  in the
smb.conf file.  
However I have this set to server string = Samba.
When I browse the network on the Windows boxes the correct description
appears for the server - Samba (calais)
Excerpt from smb.conf:
    workgroup = INNWEBTECH
    netbios name = calais
    server string = Samba

    security = user
    encrypt passwords = Yes
    domain logons = Yes

Excerpt login script has the following line:
net use M: \\calais\downloads

Does anyone know how to set the correct description for the share on mapped
