[Samba] how to make ms xp save login credentials

Hello everybody,

I use the bellow command to connect my samba share and system shares
to windows xp desktop machines:

net use o: \\samba-server\<share> /user:<username> <passwd>
net use o: \\<nebiosname>\E$ /user:<username> <passwd>

This works fine until the system is restarted and it will ask for the
username and passwords again.

How can I make Microsoft Windows XP remember the login credentials of
it shares?

Is there some extra option in the net command I should use?

Thanks in advance,

With kind regards,

Jelle de Jong
