Q

How do I map the home catalog directly, but not the shared folder?

I would like to know how to write a script that maps up the home directories that lie directly under a shared folder. How do I map up the home catalog directly, and not the shared folder, in a mixed NT/2000 and Win 95/98 environment?
This isn't a problem with Windows 2000, which allows you to map shares' subfolders to drive letters. Earlier versions of Windows don't support this capability, however. The solution is to share each user's home folder individually, and then map to it using net use * /home. You can hide the share's name by adding a dollar-sign ($) to the end of it.
