I have three PCs on a workgroup, If i create a share on say one PC I want everybody to be able to map to thia share without putting the username and password in everytime they need to use the share. At the moment they map drive x://merlin/dfsroot and then connect as smarsden and password and it connects ok. How can they just map without the password? It means me putting my password in everytime they need to connect after a reboot

Windows will attempt to use the same username and password that was used to login when connecting to other resources. It appears that the username and password doesn't exist on the machine that you have shared the folder on.

You have three choices.

1. Get a server and create a domain.
2. Create username and passwords on each machine that match
3. Enable the guest account - but this creates a massive security risk.

In future - it would help if you indicated what operating system each machine is running. I have made a presumption there that you are running with Windows 2000 or XP on all machines.
