Novell to NT migration changes

By yisrael ·
We have an almost pure win95/98 desktop enviroment. A couple of months ago I migrated from Netware 3.12 to NT 4.0. The Netware server was retired. I found a few strange things with the NT changeover:

Creating a home directory: WinNT enviroment variables don't work with win9x. I had to share the users home directory and manually go to each machine to map a home directory to the users share. Is there any better way to map a users home directory with logon scripts? To create a seperate logon script for each user is as tedious as manually mapping directories with the GUI.

Visible directories: Another thing that was strange was that in Novell when a user has no rights on a certain share, they don't see it. This deters the curious pest - why show someone something they can't use? With NT any share is visible to everyone. I tried using hidden shares but it didn't seem to work properly. Please advise.
