[Samba] Windows XP Home Edition

It is true that XP Home can not authenticate to a domain, but an upgrade to
XP Pro will not automatically solve the disconnected drive problem.

My main work station is XP Pro and authenticates to a Win2K AD PDC, and I
will still loose touch with the my mapped drive (which is mapped to the
shared AD resource).  Clicking on the share will re-connect it again, but
that doesn't fix your problem

Our company has looked for a fix for this for a while, and have yet to find
anything that works.
