MS Windows Me, dialing up to Samba

I once had problems mapping network drives on an NT 4.0 network (no UNIX
involved) using Network Neighborhood's map network drive. I ended up, for
whatever reason, needing to use the command line
'net use \\server\directory' to make the mapping work.
Try it and let us know how it works out.
