If you set your server up to serve logon scripts (per user) and also 
serve system policies to the win clients you can have the logon 
script map chosen shares as mapped drives per user at logon and can 
also use the policy file to have the chosen client machines to not 
display "My Network Places" that should do it. I have that set up 
here and it seems to accomplish what you are after.
