You have much more flexibility in Samba due to the various %[letter]
substitutions in smb.conf. You could, for instance, name the startup
logon script = %U.bat
That would give you a script that is named after the user logging in
or you could use %G.bat for a group specific setup. The actual files
used for startup do not have to be different for all users, you can
use hard- or softlinks as appropriate.
