    Here is the problem

    Running a peer to peer XP network at my sister's church.
    8 computers in the workgroup.
    Not using a domain , only a workgroup.

    New Dell computer was purchased to be used as Bookkeeper Computer.

    Church software files were moved from old bookkeeper computer to new one.
    All other computers set up as workstations. Software runs and is installed thur mapped network drive.

    The problems is that everytime we restart any workstation computers they lose the mapped drive. If you browse the network to access Bookkeeper computer you must give logon name and password to access that computer. After you log on then you can map network drive and use software.

    It never work that way before the new Dell computer and always stayed mapped without logon info. I can easily access any other computer on the network with out logging on .

    Church Software support says it is a network problem. But what is baffling to me is that you must use church software logon info to access the Bookkeeper computer.

    Is this a logon or user account setting problem on the new Dell?

    Software support told me that Bookkeeper computer had to be logged on a network administrator. I have it set to logon automatically (go to welcome screen) . I changed it in user account setting to go to windows logon screen but did not seem to help (not using a password)

    Any suggestions? Help!!!!
