  1. Can anyone give me the script on how to map network drives through a batch file that starts up & runs automatically when windows initiates?

    I have 2 drives that I need to map, both of which are on my home network...

    Any help would be AWESOME!!!

    Windows XP (and probably 2000) have an option to "reconnect on login" when you create the network drive. Is this something that would work for you?

    I know you can use the NET USE command to map network drives, but I don't have much experience with it since I've never really needed it. Check out this page for more details: http://msmvps.com/blogs/kwsupport/archive/2004/11/03/17830.aspx

    If youre using Windows Me, 98 or something else, then things might get sticky.... :)
