That's not the correct way. You should eliminate all mount points from
HKEY_USERS/.DEFAULT (manually with RegEdit).

Create the right mount points as system mount points via

	mount -s ...

They are located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then.

Is G: a share or a local drive? If it's a share you should try to
connect to the share directly (cd //server/share). If that doesn't
work, try to create a new share inside of the remote connection:

	net use K: \\\\server\\share /user:username [password]

If that works and you can change to //k you will need to do this
every time you have logged in remotely. The problem is that the
credentials of your local login are unknown in the remote session.
