You can do this with windows xp; I don't know about other versions of 
windows.  From the control panel click on User Accounts.  Chose a user.  
In the related task box there is an option called "Manage my network 
passwords".  From this box you can setup arbitrary 
server/username/password combinations.

I don't know of another way to this menu, but I'm sure there are.  Its 
the "Stored Username and Passwords" manager.  A quick google finds
