Earlier versions of NT (4.0, W2K(?)) have kept the established connections
across logins. At least since XP the connections are local to the logon
session. This means, you don't have the shares available automatically,
but you can reestablish them in your new login session without having to
give your user name and password. A simple
$ net use X: \\\\server\\share
should suffice, and it does on my XP box. If you can't do that, I'm
wondering if you're accidentally login to a local account on the box,
instead of to a domain account. I can't tell, but there must be some
external reason for this behaviour.
