    I am in the process of moving our users from our old Netware 3.X server to NT4 Domain. Just because its the way we've always done it, I recreated all the users directories in NT and shared them individually the way we always have in netware. I suspect that in NT the proper way would have been to share the \\ourserver\users$ and then given permissions to the individual users directories, but I cant map the users drive directly to their directory that way and I wanted the users to see their shares only and not everyone elses. Even though they cant get into the other user directories it would just confuse them, (and maybe tempt them to try) if they see all the user directories out there. My concern is that I have between 300 and 400 users. Is there a limit to the actual shares NT can have? Is there a performance hit for hundreds of shares? Am I heading into problems further on by giving the users these shares? What is the accepted and preferred way to provide each user with a user directory?

    thanks in advance
