    When you map drives under Windows, there's an option to automatically map them after start up. If you're having problems with this, more details would be useful, such as what OS you are using, if you're computer is able to even get on the network at all etc...

    You need to authenticate with the server each time you login.
    If your PC's aren't joined to the servers Domain, you need to authenticate with it somehow.

    Try doing the following in a cmd prompt:

    net use \\servername or server IP address /user:username password
