Re: [K12OSN] making logon scripts

You shouldn't have any problems posting, I wouldn't think...

I use "net use..." almost daily. I haven't looked at the help in a long
time.  Probably a bunch in there that I'm missing or forgetting.  Makes me
think of all the cool *nix tools that I don't even begin to really know
about!   Too much to know to little time...

I set SAMBA up as a Primary Domain Controller for my windows clients.  It
works great, logins, automatic drive mappings, etc.  *That* was a battle
getting smb.conf just right for it, but once it was done it was perfect!
I'm sure M$ doesn't appreciate that but it works so :-P~

As a friend of mine said recently, "I think that's the model for all
computer problems. Hours and hours to figure it
out, and 2 minutes to actually fix it."

Truer words were never spoken!  LOL!
