Logging on to a mapped drive

Last response: in Windows XP

Everytime I turn my computer on I have to re-enter my username and password to connect to a mapped network drive. The drive is on a server running 2003 at work.
The server has the permissions set up to allow me to connect with my server account, but I have XP home on my machine
Is there any way to keep me from having to enter my username and password every day?

When you mapped the drive, did you click "Connect using a different user name."? You should be able to store the domain login there.

I didnt notice that
It's an option when you set up a mapped drive with XP home?

Yes, it's just below Reconnect at login.
