Wanting Step By Step Instructions for Mapping Network Drives

Hi Everyone:

       I am wanting to have a network drive to appear within My Computer icon.  I believe this involves mapping the network drives, but, I am not for sure.  In any case, if anyone can give me steps for accomplishing this task, it will be appreciated.

        The operating systems are Windows XP Pro and Windows XP Pro SP2.


2 Solutions
*Open My Network Places
*Click Entire Network
*Open Microsoft Windows Network
*Open ur system, it will shows list of shares, right click on any share & Map Network Drive then new dialog box appears,
Select Drive Letter in dialog box
select reconnect at logon check boxClick Finish.

Hi Everyone:

        I now have one of the two drives mapped successfully.  I will map the other one tomorrow.  As a quick note, I noticed if My Network Places is right-clicked, there is an option of Map Network Drive.  At that point, I simply selected Browse to navigate to the network drive, then, I assigned a drive letter, left checked reconnect at logon, then, clicked Finish.  Worked perfectly!!!

         Thanks so much.
