I think MS just did us (and themselves) a disservice.

A small hack which you can try is to replace
the server (hostname) with its IP address, e.g.

 net use x: \\server's-ip-address\share /user:domain/username password
I have a vague memory of that then you create a second
connection from the client using another set of
credentials. But this was a long time ago (2 year)
that I worked with this (under NT4).
