Question Auto Logon Mapped Samba Drive

Hi Guys

I have a windows 2000 network and a Linux Mandrake 9 machine acting as a file server. Samba is working fine and I have mapped the network drives on the Win2000 machines.

However there is an annoying little issue were you have to entry your password on reconnection. Is there any way to auto logon to the mapped drives??

Thank you in advanced

Match your pc name, logon name and password to the Samba stored passwords.
On browsing it will pass your credentials and only ask for them if your "identity" doesn't match the Samba user list.
