It is kind of new that Linux boxes can log into a PDC? I know that they
can mount shares. There are different ways to do that including GIUs ,
but I have found that if that Samba or Windows share is always
available, when a Linux box boots, then put the mount into the rc.local
at the very end.
I don't exactly remember what the command is, but I can look at my
office box and let you know
