[Samba] Windows 2000 and XP Password

Hello All

I have been using Samba for a few years now with Windows 95 and 98
clients and have never had a problem at all. Recently I had to administer
a new network with Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional
clients. I am finding that both of these clients will not cache the network
password for very long. I find that if I reboot the clients through the day
they remake the connection to the samba server with no problems.
However when the clients are booted after being shut down for the night
the password must be entered. Is there any way to change this behaviour
as I do not want my users to have to enter any passwords to use their
network drive.
