I didn't think Windows 95 supported this method of connecting with a 
different username?

Oddly, though, it appears to just be the part of the client which parses 
the network path and not the underlying client software.  I have written 
a small (except it uses MFC :-) program which allows you to connect 
specifying the username / password.

If anyone wants a copy / the source, they're welcome...
