Thanks, I looked there. But I was looking for something that would 
easily disconnect and maybe do it automatically when the user was logged 
out. This will be used in a small lab setting where there will be an 
single login so I don't want to leave one person's account mounted for 
the next person to have be able to access. I guess I am looking for 
something that would function like NIS. I guess an option is to run NIS 
and then a person can have the some of this customized for the user.
