I am trying to map a drive in Windows 98 from a different domain and it is asking me for a password. It does not prompt for a user name and password like XP or 2000 would. I would like to create a batch file that includes the user name and password of a different user. Does 98 support specifing a user and password? And if so what is the syntax.

You can supply the password on the commandline but it doesnt support a different username. Have a look at net use /? | more from a command prompt.

Ya I saw that when I used net use ?/. I thought maybe by writing a script on the server it would over write it.
