There is also a pam_mount module you might want to look at.
With an /etc/fstab entry;
If the permissions of the filesystem are exclusive for that user, then even if another use can mount it, they can't use it at all. If all of the users are on the same network device, you could have the /home directory mounted on the network device at boot time, containing user directories.
Also, look at "man autofs" and "man 5 auto.master" documentation.
