This means that when a person logs into the samba server it will execute
this file. You should possibly put this file on your NT server that's
currently the PDC in the netlogon share there though, which would mean that
presuming that samba authenticates ok back to the NT box, your users will
transparently get a whole new bunch of drives, and won't need to worry about
password maintenance etc.

FYI i haven't managed to get password = server to work . I ended up getting
rid of the NT box and just using samba.

You can either via GUI front end or autoexec.bat map a drive permanantly.
I leave teh task of which button to click to you, however from a script
on your Windows client, you can use 'net use ....' to map a drive
at boot up.
