names.nsf id file

simply set up an auto link to their own account on a file server and set up
the structure as follows
Notes ,<dir>
template files you only need the bookmark tmplt for V5 others can be
sourced from the server as required, but the bookmark template is required for
v5 initialisation

data <dir>

the shortcut for the icon on the desktop
c:\lotus\notes\nlnotes.exe =k:\notes\notes.ini
K being the mapped drive
you will need to auto link to the drive as part of the logon process
ie mount k: //fileserver/notesusers/%USERNAME%

this should allow the user to goto any correctly setup client logonto NT then
use Notes as if they were at their own desk...
