network drives, samba

I was wondering if anyone has heard of any problems with an xp machine connecting to a server running samba under freebsd. For some reason it won't save the password when i try to set it up to automatically map a network drive at login. I do have the box checked to reconnect at login. But when i logout and log back in the little tips box pops up and says that it could not properly map the network drive. If i go into my computer\windows explorer and click on that network drive it'll come up with a login prompt. Is there something else i need to do to automatically get it to map the network drive at login?

Sounds like it just doesn't work right, to state the obvious...I'd say don't even have it try to login automatically, just enter the password the first time you access the drive. Not a perfect solution, but it'll speed up your boot/login time a little.

Is your username and password on the XP machine the same as your username and samba password on the BSD machine? As far as I know, they have to be identical to automatically log you in. I havn't had any problems mapping samba shares in XP, and having them mapped automatically.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
