Authentication through Cisco VPN 5000 Client on Windows XP Pro.

I recently upgraded my Machine to Windows XP Pro.  I also upgraded my VPN Client to 5000.  While I can log onto the server at work, just like I did when running Windows 2000 Pro, I can no longer map the drives I need.  On Windows 2000 I would map drives by typing in the path.  A window would pop up and ask me my login and password.  I would type them in and then have a mapped drive.  Doing the same on Windows XP Pro, I still get the Login window but when I fill out the information it will not except my login and password.  It also comes back with an extended login name that consists of "my computer name\login".  My user information has not changed as I still use it to login at work.  I would like to be able to solve this problem.

You can enable Netbios over TCP/IP in your Local Area Network properties, TCP/IP, advanced button, WINS tab, choose "enable" vs "default"

When you are prompted for a username/password, try using DOMAIN\username and your domain password
