Thanks for the tip.  In a windows AD domain, this is accomplished by using a group policy... so how do you do this in samba.  I don't want to added each XP box.
If it is done via a logon script, do you have an example?

the first result is spot on.

use a login script or a mandatory desktop.

These 2 questions have nothing to do with samba, though ;), they are
normal windows networking in action.
