Thanks for the info. I've been trying to get this to work but I'm having
difficulty with it.
I put the statement "logon script = startup.bat" in my [global] section. I
browseable = no
share modes = no
into the smb.conf. And I made a startup.bat which I placed in
/usr/local/samba/lib, and which contains only the command "net use h:
/homes". But when I log in to the PC, unfortunately it doesn't connect me
to the homes share automatically like I thought it should. I checked the
samba logs and I don't see any error messages there. Anybody have ideas
about what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks a lot,
