Adding Linux Clients to Samba PDC, 2 things

How do I go about the following:
1. Authenticating users logins on linux clients against samba primary domain controller
2. if authentication is successfull mounting the users home directory

Currently there are win 2k machines that are currently running on this setup but now there are some linux clients that have been added.

This link explains how you can join a samba domain:

I don't know of a way, or even if it is possible to have a login script run in linux. What i would do is create a mount point and setup in fstab to mount to the samba server. then the user simply has to mount it or you can make it auto mount.
