Ok, I know the moderator is supposed to ANSWER questions, not ask them, but i can't find this one feature...... :(

I have a assortment of mapped network drives to different computers on my network. If i logon to my local machine and one comptuer is not on, it takes a long time to log in. I remember Windows 98 having a option of either "Reconnect at Logon" or "Reconnect at first use", but i want it in XP too. Anyone know where it is?

Thanks in advance

That's an easy one. You can't. It's either map manually every time, or map at logon. You could probably try and write a batch file to map drives on each individual machine...but I would suggest either not shutting down or deal with one whole minute during boot.
