OS X: How do I check for a specific WiFi network and mount network drives on startup

At home I use my MacBook Pro on my own WiFi network and routinely mount several volumes from a RAID attached to my AirPort Base station. I like to have my MBP automatically mount the volumes on startup.

"MarcoPolo is a really cool peice of software for having your computer figure out where it is based upon a large number of criteria (which WiFi is visisble, which monitor is hooked up, etc.) and then take actions (including mounting network disks) based upon that information.

I use it for switching certain settings based on whether I am at home or at work, and it works really, really well.

Best of all, it's free."
