XP does not remember drive mapping.

Well, actually it does, but it does not receive the password from the Login screen.

Let me tell you what I really mean.

It is an XP home computer on a NT 4 network without a domain.  There is also a Netware 5 server on the network.  The computer therefore cannot login to Netware (since it is XPHome) without the Netware client from Novell.  The computer boots up, gives me the RED login screen from Netware and proceeds to login.  Then it pops up a login dialog for the drive mappings on the NT server and asks for a password.

The username and passwords are the same on each server.

Other computers with a similar setup get the password typed into the netware client and pass it to the drive mapping and do not pop up the login dialog.

Right now, the user on this computer has to type the password twice.  Once for the login to Netware and once for the dirve mapping the the NT 4.0 machine.

Any ideas as to why the password is not successfully passed to the drive mapping in this case.

We have TCP/IP, Netbeui and the netware protocols loaded.

Thanks

Stephen

On the Nt 4.0 machine, create a user by the same username and password that you login to XP Home machine with, also give this username Share permissions and NTFS permissions on the shared drive on NT 4.0 machine.
