Hi Jake

What exactly is the problem? Three possibilities:
1.) You have a samba server running on your debian box, and the windows 
clients die? No problem -> nothing should have to be done on the server 
2.) The windows machines do not die at all, but you reboot them anyway? 
-> Umount the shares before you reboot them.
3.) You have a Debian workstation which uses directories exported from a 
Windows machine? This is a bad idea anyway. Don't run windows as a 
server, it only causes trouble.
