Program to copy files on a network

I only have a few points but I need your help

I am not a good programmer but I try to help myself.  

I have a problem whereby

I logon to a windows 2000 professional machine and try to map a network drive so that each student can copy their own disk.

I use Visual Basic 6.0

I want the program to
1.  Ask for the username
2.  Ask for their password
3.  Map to the network drive

example
username: andrew
password: ********
"command to map network drive"
net use g: \\domainname\username$ /user:domainname\username password


I hope I give you enough info.  Thanks for your response. Ray

Hi, i'm not sure about what you are trying to do. Do you want to have a GUI for the net use command?
If so, that's what i've been doing in VB6:

1. Place a TextBox named User and one named Password on your form.
2. Place a Button named NetUseNow on your form.
3. Let your Programm execute this code:

Private Sub NetUseNow_Click()
 strCommand = "net use i: \\domainname\" & User.Text & "$ " & Password.Text & " /USER:domainname\" & User.Text
 s = Shell(strCommand)
End Sub

hope it helps

Private Sub Close_Click()
Shell Environ("ComSpec") & " /c net use g: /del"
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim username As String
username = Text1.Text
Shell Environ("ComSpec") & " /c net use i: /del"
Shell Environ("ComSpec") & " /c net use i: \\csa\" & Trim$(username) & "$" & " " & "/user:csa\" & Trim$(username)
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Shell Environ("ComSpec") & " /c explorer i:"
Text1.Text = " "
End Sub


This is the code,  the user types in their username, then there is a pasword button, when they click on the password button the command net use \\domain .... will run from the command prompt window. After the type in the password, they then click on the copy button and the explorer command will execute.

The problem I am having is when they click on the password  button the dos command window is minimized, therefore the user will not know that the window to type in their password is actually minimized.  Could  you say what I could do to make the dos window maximized when they click on password?   Thanks for your help Ray.

Shell(Environ("ComSpec")&"net .......", AppWinStyle.MaximizedFocus)
