Map network drive

Hi,

When mapping a network drive in Windows NT, I could just use \\computername login and then it would show me a list of the available shares on that computer.

However, now I have W2K Advanced Server, it won't accept this syntax and states that I must also put in a share name eg: \\computername\share
As I don't know what shares are available on a machine, how can I do what I used to do in NT in W2K easily.

Thanks,

Don't map the drive right away, just type \\Cumputername in the run menu,  computer shares should popup, then click aon the share and map the drive...

Hi sorty,

You need to click "Browse" in the Map Network Drive Window.
