Mount SMB shares upon establishing a PPTP connection

I'm looking for an easy way to have OS X mount SMB shares once a user has connected to my windows server via PPTP.  I realize that I could setup a shell script that the user could run but I'd rather not have the their usernames and passwords stored in the shell script and I'm positive they aren't going to be comfortable w/ anything that does not have a GUI.  If the answer is "No, you need to code something yourself" that's fine...I'll still give ya' the points. THanks in advance for any replies.

Cant you just create an alias of the mounted volume which they can double click? The login/pass would be stored in the keychain and used when the finder mounts the volume.

Well the problem with that is that they'll have to click about 5 different volumes and I'd like to make this as easy for them as possible.

If all the volumes exist in the dock, its a single click on each. Or if they all exist on the desktop, just highlight them all and double click. You could even write an applescript that would point to all the aliases.
