[K12OSN] access to samba shares from winxp

There is a program called daemon-tools www.daemon-tools.cc  that works like virtual cd, etc.  I don't know how it would work in a terminal server environment.   I use it to mount educational game cds in our windows 98 lab (That way the kids aren't putting cds in all the time, and ruining them).  You can actually control the mounting/unmounting of images via cmd line (batch file), so I automate mount cd, run program, unmount program for each one.  Took me a while to find it, but is free and worth it!

	I have used a free software called Virtual Clone Drive on Windows for
	mounting disk images and using them as an actual drive.  But I don't
	know if that will allow multiple users to mount it at the same time.
