Hmm, try a higher verion of samba first, coz 3.02 is from the early stages..
could you send some part of the log file, coz it might be a permission 
thing, or maybe the drive letters are already used in the profile it 
self ? or some other thing.
try logging in without the logonscript (where the drives get mapped), 
then you can see if the letters are already used..
if not, try entering the net use command when you are logged in (without 
script), to see if it returns an error..
