We'r trying to connect clients running Mac OS 9.x and Mac OSx to a Win 2003 server. After a lot of hazzle, we'v managed to get all connected - BUT..
These klients will be used by ppl who have no idea about Mac or Windows, just basic knowlege.
After connecting to the server from either OSx or OS9, the shared folder on the server is "mapped" on the desktop of the Mac. When displayd there, the users will easily find the "shortcut" and be able to save files to the server. The problem occure when they re-boot the Mac. Then the "shortcut" is gone and one will have to connect using login info etc -

Is there a way to save the "shortcut" to the Mac desktop?

Thanks in advance :)

regards

Make an alias of the mounted volume and put it on the desktop. Double clicking the alias will mount the remote volumes.
