Q

How can I auto-connect to a drive at reboot without mapping to it?

How do I connect to a resource (folder) on a networked Windows 2000 system from my Win2k system and ensure that it automatically reconnects when my system is rebooted? I don't want to map a drive.
If you don't map a drive, then you'll need to write a script that executes each time you log on to make the mapping. The only way to make a connection persistent is to map a drive. Otherwise, you'll need to link to it manually (or by script) every time.
