Hi Lukasz

Yes, that's exactly what we are doing at the moment. Our Linux clients 
get their home directory automounted via nfs. It works fine.

What I want is for that same home directory to be mapped to a windows 
drive letter. My method of having one share per class works, but would 
create over 30 shares. I'm not sure that having this many shares is 
advisable. I can find few examples of smb.conf's with more than but a 
handful of shares.
