Can you mount them with a windows login script?  Something along the lines of:

if exist g:\nul net use g: /del
net use g: \\servername\sharedfolder\jim

or, simply

net use g: \\servername\sharedfolder\jim /persist:yes

It has been a while since I messed with batch files for mounting shares at log on but I
have had to do this a lot in the past even with all Windows domains.  I think this will
take variables as well for mounting user home folders.
