I think you will need to learn to work the Linux way. You're trying the Windows way and I don't think you can quite do that.

There should be a file /etc/fstab on your disc. Edit it (as root) to include the shares you always want to connect to. They will then be mounted at startup, or if they only become available later, when you issue the command
sudo mount -a
As far as a "Map Network Drives" command is concerned, try SMB4k.

Hope this helps.
