Cygwin on a Win2003 server mounting to UNC paths

I have a Win2003 Server running Cygwin. How do I configure it such that without any user logging in, I have drive letters auto-magically get mapped to UNC paths (other Windows Servers via  \\servername\share) each time the server gets bounced or reboots? If I'm not mistaken, drive letters are mapped to UNC paths by user, or more accurately when a user logs in. Am I wrong? Sorry, I'm no Windows guru/expert.
