That's not required. Samba defines the share requested by HOME and the
client does not need to know what it is. I have a logon script that does
## mount our stuff and synch time from server
print LOGON "NET USE S: /HOME\r\n";
(this is part of a magic script that is created by perl, so if you
distill that line down, it's the same one the original poster is using)
So, I don't know what's wrong, but isn't there an error or something?
