mapped drive for a local user keep disconnected

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a domain with 2003 & a workstation with windows xp. we have 2 different users using the same machine, one is a domain user & the other is a local administrator.

I map a drive to the domain user & it stays mapped forever. But I had to map the drive to the local admin user every day or when he logs off. To map the drive I have to provide the server administrator password that has the folder to be mapped, but I don't want to give this password to the user so he can map the drive everytime when I'm not there.
