Our domain controller is on Windows 2008.
Our file share is on Snow Leopard Server.
Our workstations are Windows XP.
We are using Active Directory.
The Snow Leopard server is bound to Active Directory.

Is there a way to automount the Apple shares on the Windows XP workstations? If so, how?

Domain policy allows you to configure fileshares to automap to a specified drive letter. Would that work?

Change the logon script on the Domain Controller to mount the fileshares on the Snow Leopard server.
Add the logon script to the users profiles.

net use Z: \\fileserver\sharename
