    Ok, here's the setup. I have a client that is running two new Dell machines, two old generic white boxes all running XP. The machine they use as a server is a white box running Win2000.

    They have an Access DB on the Win2000 machine that they all need to access. The older white boxes map and hold the connection after rebooting. The two new Dells don't. Also, when I go to remap the Dells, the folder asks for a username and password. As far as I can tell, the 2000 machine is wide open with no need for any logins or passwords, yet I keep getting asked for them when I try to remap the Dells. Could the UID and PWD be the reason the Dells won't stay mapped? Am I missing something?

    Any ideas?
