And on client side? Is there a method to do that in a batch script on 
the windows machine. Samba could generate a dynamic batch script, which 
is executed on the client. And this batch-script checks, if a letter is 
already mapped. Just an idea, but I don't know the commands on a windows 
machine to get a list of all novell letters.
