wpa_supplicant.conf mount networked drive

I have searched around and haven't found any information about adding a custom command to a particular network{} section of wpa_supplicant.conf to mount a networked drive. I don't know if this would even be the proper place to do it, but since it is where specific code for connection to a particular network is located, it seems like a logical place for it. In all the sample wpa_supplicant.conf files I have read I haven't seen anything like this. So to be clear, when wpa_supplicant connects to my home network I want a networked drive to be mounted automatically.

Thanks for any advice on this matter.

It may be worth a look at using udev to launch an external command in conjunction with your wireless coming up.
