Logon script question

I am using login scripts on a W2003 domian XP client. I am trying to configure an Xp client to attach to a share outside of the domain (share on a standalone/workgroup w2003 server). From a command prompt on the Client, I can "net use I: \\servername\share /user:servername\username password" (where the username and password are a local administrative account on the workgroup share) and it works fine. When the logon script runs, it always fails on the credentials. I enter the username and password again, then it will connect. Any suggestions?

u will need to write the password in a textfile and also press enter in the textfile to apply the command. Then link the textfile with the command, like this:

net use I: \\servername\share /user:servername\username < password.txt

Found the solutions myself, the syntax was incorrect. This is the syntax I used.

net use I: \\servername\share password /user:servername\username
