By adding the server to which you mapped the drive to the "Local Intranet" sites in the IE properties. Theoretically, NetBIOS names should be identified as being in the local intranet by default, but that doesn't always work.

another solution is to uninstall the enhanced security for ie on the windows 2003 server. this is the main problem. after that reset internet explorer security levels to default for the user(s) or do the thing oBdA suggested
