    Let's clarify something here. Are you telling me that you can only specify a username and a password when you map the drive? Does this happen everytime? My assumption is that once you've established an initial connection, all other connections shouldn't ask anything as long as you didn't reboot. This should be the case whether you mapped the drive or not.
    When you say "double clicking the icon," are you referring to the machine under "Network Neighborhood?" Doesn't window popup and ask you for a username and a password? If not, what does happen?

    The only time any time that i can specify a user name is when I map the drive.

    Any other instance when I try to get on the drive I get a screen with the user name and password.

    The user name has a generic guest user name already entered and it wont let me change it.

    And when i said clicking on the icon i meant clicking on the folder that goes to the specific drive not the computer icon.

    1. Post your new smb.conf using the code format from this forum.
    2. What's the syntax that you mapped the drive as
    3. Which icon did you click on?

    # Global parameters
    [global]

    	os level = 255
    	preferred master = Yes
    	domain master = Yes

    [KATIEWEB]

    	read only = No
    	writeable = Yes
    I went to network neighborhood.
    Then i clicked on the computer icon katie.
    then i clicked on the folder cliffweb.
    Then it asks me for a name and password. Only thing is it wont let me choose the user name[/img]

    Dunno much about Samba (yet) but don't you need the browseable parameter? If this is not set you can only map to it

    Code:
    browseable = yes
