This is not in smb.conf per se. You will configure the share in smb.conf and
setup a logon script with at least the line:

net use S: \\yourserver\theshare /persistent:no

(that's what I use and it works pretty well, but YMMV)

The script must be in the [netlogon] share. Also, it must be DOS formatted
(use unix2dos if you create the file under Unix). Then, in smb.conf, add:

logon script = \path\to\yourscript.bat

in the global section where \path\to\yourscript.bat is the relative path of
your script from the root of the netlogon share (just forget the \path\to\ if
it's at the root).
