There is no way to make windows 95 prompt for a username, to set the
username windows 95 uses when connecting to the server go start, shutdown,
close all programs and login as a different user. In this box you should
enter the username you wish to use when making any connections to a server
and the password with which you want windows 95 to protect your remote
passwords should you choose to save the remote passwords in your password
list file.

Hope this is of help,
