Chuck,

I ran startup.reg locally on a Windows XP home edition
PC (on my home network, which is just a simple
peer-to-peer workgroup network).  On this PC, P: had
already been mapped to another computer's shared
folder using

net use p: /delete
net use p: \\raven\shared\personal\%USERNAME%
/persistent:yes

in the same .bat file that runs startup.reg.  Windows
substitutes the user account name for %USERNAME%. 
("raven" is just the name of my home's file server) 
At this point, I've just been playing around with this
stuff, so I'm not sure if I really need the
"persistent" parameter.

As it is right now, I'd have to run startup.bat (and
its startup.reg) in each user account in each of my
Windows PCs, though I might need to only actually run
once, instead of at every start up.

I imagine something similar could be set up with a
samba PDC using the logon file specification in
smb.conf.  And then perhaps run startup.reg directly
from the server instead of on each PC.  Unfortunately,
I won't have a samba PDC to test this idea on for
about another month.

David
