Question samba - extra home directory being mapped on win2k

Hello people!

I've looked for an answer to my question but I haven't found it yet!
Well, I'm having troubles with user's home directories when they log in win2000 workstations.
I have defined the letter S to be user's home directory, but on win2000 machines appears an extra home (with same content) with letter Z mapped. So, they have two letters mapped as their home directory, S and Z.
The scripts are all running ok on win95, win98 computers. They are something like:

net use f: \\linux1\public
net use g: \\linux1\rotines
net use m: \\kinux1\data
net use s: \home

This problem happens only on win2000, win95 and win98 are doing it just fine.
I haven't test on XP workstations, but I believe I'll have the same problem.

Any help is welcome!

Yes, I do!

The strange is that it's happening only on win2k stations.
If I log in win98 stations the only letter I see as my home directory is S.
