Make a network folder prompt for domain credentials...

I have a user that is at a remote location right now.  He needs access to his home directory.  They have a generic user account setup for him and it is also setup on our network so when he accesses a network resource, it is already authenticated to get access to our general resources.  But now he needs access to his home directory which of course, this generic user account doesn't have access to.  So, how can I make it prompt him for his domain credentials so he can view his home directory?  Thanks.

are the general resources and the home directory on the same server?
it isn't possible to be authenticated to one SMB server with more then 1 account.

yes, this server is included in what would be considered the general resources.  That is kind of the answer I expected.  I'll have to figure out plan B I guess.  Thanks.

I would suggest giving the personal account more rights and instead of generic account, make a security domain group with the same rights as the generic account and make the useraccount member of that group. This way you have the convenience of having 1 account/group to access the generic resources, if these changes, it changes for all users of that group, and having the possibility to give 1 user spzcific rights (to his/her own home folder for example).
