*** Had the same problem. Life is too short to try and understand Win2k
brainstorms so this is what I did:

- Instruct user to hit "Esc" twice after login to get rid of the error

- Created a *.bat file which is in user "Start up" folder and which mounts
the shares automatically:

echo. "............................"
echo. ""
echo. "   Mounting Linux drives"
echo. ""
echo. "............................"
net use D: \\[server_name]\[share] [PASSWORD]

or this if you're connecting to a domain server

net use D: \\[server_name]\[share] /USER:[DOMAIN]\[DOMAIN_USER_NAME]

P.S. On one line!

Have fun.
