I need to disable the automount feature (chooser) so that when a user restarts the computer will not attempt to logon to the server.  I have new users on computers that belonged to someone else.  I already tried deleting preferences files and looked for invisible files but to no avail.  Thanks.

open the chooser, click on the nifty lil appleshare icon. A list of servers should pop up. double click the server thats automounting and a new dialog should pop up with items on that server that are shared. next to those items should be a checkbox. if that checkbox is checked your computer will mount that volume on startup. so...uncheck the box. thats that.

Yes, I appreciate the quick response but I do not know the passwords for the previous users so therefore I cannot do what you suggest.  There most be some file, etc. where this information is stored.  How do I clear it.  Is there a way to zap the Chooser?  I kinda remember hearing something to that effect.

Thanks.

If ya dont know the password you arent going to get very far. If there was a file you could delete to get around the password the whole system would be useless and would present a security hole the size of nebraska. The only way to get it to not automount is to uncheck the box..or turn filesharing off...heh

If you reload your system software that should take care of it.  All your settings will be put back to default but that should only take a few minutes of your time to reconfigure.  This is the only way to do it since you don't know the password.
