Login to NT Domain from login script - batch file

I am cutting all 25 Windows XP users from an NT domain to a Windows SBS 2011 Std domain. For a period of time they will require access to a share in the old NT domain. Is there a way to change the login script in SBS 2011 so I can login to the old NT domain with an account from there and map a drive to that old NT share?  

Thanks

Matt

Can you map it in your Win2k11 scripts as an IP mapping?  net use z: \\192.168.0.1\share  
DFS is an option here as well.

HOW?  Your script can point to two servers no problem - if they aren't in the same domain and the user logged in doesn't have the same user name and password on both domains they will either be prompted for the password or it will simply fail to map.

leew - that's my question. i was hoping to script credentials into the login script to login to the NT server and map a drive to the NT share.  Are you saying I will have to do that every time?

Thanks

jim - i will get prompted for that domain username and password each time. i was trying to get around that with scripting in a generic id and password to the login script.
