Active Directory 2003 and mapped drives

I just implemeted 2003 Active directory ( upgrade from NT4 domain). My questions ..Some of the mapped drives are "dropping off". On the 2000 and XP systems this is just annoying..just click on the drive and it reconnects. But the Win 98 systems need to restart to reconnect. Is there a fix for this? Thanks, Darryl

it's the autodisconnect.... you can't turn it off but you can set it to 8000 years with this:

Option1: net config server /autodisconnect:-1
Option2: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Autodisconnect
