Topic: special share

Running system:
SuSE 7.2 (kernel 2.2.4) & samba-3.0.0beta1
The is coexisting Win(Millennium) system at the server (reason: many win 
partitions MUST be directly available at the central unit under windows 
system after rebooting to windows).

People connect their laptops (with small HD and predominately Win2k SP2) to
central unit and samba offers shares with Linux accounts. However, there are
many win partitions (previously created for any user) at the same computer
equipped with many HD (6 at present time). It is not possible to mount all win
partitions - too many. Usual mounting scripts entails left mounted partitions
after logout or closed connections (users behave in this way). In many cases
the same (already mounted and left partition) is used by few users. 

PROBLEM: is it possible to create specific share, mounting some particular
windows partition in accordance with user during logon and UNMOUNT it during
logout or closed connection (from another HD at the same computer)? Does
anybody has an idea or knows a method how to do this or he has met a similar

Thank you in advance for any byte of information,
