How do I get windows xp home edition to store password information when accessing a server?

When I connect to a share via UNC, i am prompted for a username and password but the check box to save them isn't available.  Is there a way to enable or another solution?

yes removing domain\ should work

net use r: \\server\share /user:username password

have you thought about drive mapping

net use r: \\servername\sharename username password

I can simply add the username and password to the end of the mapping?  Do I need to put a colon in anything in too?
