map a drive to a Server not on our domian

I have a server that is in a Workgroup setting(not on a domain).  It has a unique IP address and it is connected on our network; but, I need to put this server's shared files available through our logon script.  I know 'net use' will work; but, every time these user's will logon, it will prompt them for the server's username and password.  

Is there a way to embed the username and password for a Server that is not in our domain and have a drive mapped to this server?  

Or is the best way to go about this is to map a drive manually, after the user has logged on, and choose re-connect at logon?  There is a prompt to enter the username and password at this network drive setting.

The problem with the latter choice, is that we will have to manually map a drive for every user on every PC that has that software installed on it.  That is why I was wondering if there is a way to edit a logon script and to map a drive to a server and have the logon script enter the username and password for this server, in a 'Workgroup'.

Hi Pkafkas,

have a look at this - if you use the password switch you can include credentials in your script

I wonder if ComputerName is '\ComputerName\ShareName '  can be an IP address?  I will try it out.
