    Hi,

    I was wondering if there is anyway to make X mount drives when you login (using smb://hostname/share)?
    I have a Win2000 filesever which has a dedicated mac share that I would like to mount at login rather than hving to do it manually every time I login.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    An Applescript placed in your Login Items in System Prefs might do ti...but I'm no expert in Applescript.

    ARGH! ...really, I don't think so, I can't be asked to learn a new language just to mount a drive :p
    I guess i'll just have to do it manually :(
