The thread you reference isn't doing anything more to remap the drives
than you are manually. It's just automating the process. If that's all you
need , then just put the "net use <foo> <bar>" in your .bash_login or other
convenient spot that gets run each time you login. The process described
above is just a more complicated way of getting here, albeit with certain
advantages (it won't remap your drives every time you invoke bash -l).
