    Mounting Network Drive

    At my organization, we have "public" computers, where when you sign into the server, you can click on a desktop shortcut and it will take you to your personal folder \\SERVERNAMEHIDDENFORSECURITY\firstinitiallastname . We may be converting to Ubuntu, but we cannot unless this works. Does anyone know how to do this? I think the solution might be to write a script with the firstinitiallastname being a variable. Thank you so much!

    mount //servername/share /mount/point [-o options]

    Thanks, but I'm kind of a beginner. Would I have to write some sort of script?

    Open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    nautilus smb://SERVERNAMEHIDDENFORSECURITY/firstinitiallastname
    Once it comes up Bookmark it.

    Awesome! Thanks! But is there a script I could write to make firstinitiallastname a variable? Multiple people will use the computer, so we can't have a shortcut to each account (too many people)
