[Samba] Auto mapping to windows home drives?

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm logging into a Linux/Solaris
machine running winbind, I'm using my windows username and password to
login. At the moment I use pam_mkhomedir to create a new home directory
automatically but it would be nice to map to the users existing home drive
on the NT server instead.

Have you read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf? I am sure I documented this.
There are three ways by which you can automap a network drive connection:
1) Through the User Profile information in passwd backend.
frodo:~ # pdbedit -Lv jht
Unix username: jht
Account Flags: [UX ]
User SID: S-1-5-21-1593769616-160655940-3590153233-2000
Primary Group SID: S-1-5-21-1593769616-160655940-3590153233-512
Full Name: John H Terpstra
Home Directory: \\frodo\jht
HomeDir Drive: H:
Logon Script: scripts\logon.bat
Profile Path: \\frodo\Profiles\jht
Account desc: Master Sleuth and Watchmaker

See above the "Home Directory" and "HomeDir Drive" entries.
2) By storing persistent drive connections as part of the users' desktop
profile in their roaming profile.
3) Through a network logon script. The command that would do this for the
home directory is:
net use H: /home
