@ DMcCoy He knows that!
Hi Simon, I've just ordered a(n) Eeepc, so I'll let you know how I get on!
Is the HP2600n/Business Inkjet on a share?

Automount Network Share
I've borrowed and mangled a few scripts to get eeeOS to automount a network share
I've tested it myself on a virgin machine and it seems to work but would like to know if it works for others as well.
Obviously, this approach is only suitable for primaries with open shared folders but hopefully if I can find a simple GUI app to ask for username/password then it could be used to mount protected user folders as well.

Thanks, I had been having problems with the EEEPC trying to map the network share before the network is up for quite a while.

Just a small update - I changed the file_mode to 0666 in the mount command as that's what a auto file manager mounted share looks like in /etc/mtab - no idea what dif it will make but I've done it anyway.

Well it seems that my little mods/scripts have worked fine - I went into my school that has 24 of the little things and I asked the ICT Co-ord how they were working.
He said they work fine - they just switch them on load/save files - browse and print and they just work
So, having sussed out the basics I'd like to move on a bit by getting pupils just to access their home directories (or in my simple case, just their own subfolder in the global school share)
So what I think we need is some form of login dialog to come up and ask for user name and password and then use these credentials to map a directory on the eeePC in /user/home to their appropriate home folder on a server.
Whats the way forward in achieving this and can anyone offer some help in doing it?
