automatic drive mapping when login

By FatUncleAL ·
How do I make Mac OS 9 and OSX do auto drive mapping when a user logon to a Mac OS9 computer ?
This is not the Home drive ? We have Mac OSX 10.2.8 servers. Users authenticate and get their home drive, but if they need to go to a different drive ( such as a shared group folder on another Mac OSX server ) they need to go to Chooser, connect to server, type in IP address and type in SMB......etc. Is there a way that I can setup for them ( such as login script in the Windows world ), may be they can just click on an icon and get to the other drive ?

Drive mapping, per se, isn't necessary under Mac OS. All that is
needed is to attach and mount at a share point.

In OS 9.

You can script the connections--including authentication--to
the shares via AppleScript. You can also create an alias file to
each shared folder, activate Keychain at startup, and let
Keychain handle the login when the icon is clicked.


All the above, plus you can "bookmark" a network destination in
Finder's "Go" menu.
