[Samba] query about PC setups

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 
also inserted

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,
