How to auto reconnect to UNIX upon login

Is there a way to get this to work automatically? If not, is there a way to
have the Z drive we are mapping for them automatically "open" so they are

credentials to make the connection?
Now what they are doing is having to open My Computer and double-click the Z
drive and then wait for the prompt and then enter the root and password each
time they login. Sometimes the forget and the other times they complain about
having to do that. Automatically would be way better.
