Solution: No Finder Window
Authored by: forman on Jan 11, '04 09:12:17PM
Use the following Applescript to mount smb drives in the background without opening Finder windows. The mount point is automatically created in the /Volumes directory.
try
   mount volume "smb://user@server/share"
end try
For a user with a login name of "forman" on a server called "vortex" with SMB shares called "local" and "scratch" use the following script:
try
   mount volume "smb://forman@vortex/local"
   mount volume "smb://forman@vortex/scratch"
end try
Save the script as an application using the Script Editor and put it in System Preferences -> Accounts -> Startup Items to mount the drives when you log in.

Michael.
