i just changed os from XP pro to srv 03 on my home file server. was using netwoek maped drives to it. however srv 03 regires authentication. and i do not want to use active direcory. it was trying to authenticate to my deskto pthat is accesing it when i specified hostname\username like the domain usernames work i tryed a difernet system but just kept failing. i will try updates to fix it. but seems odd that R2 out of box could have such a isue. i would think that if yuou have a account and password that are valid and permison to the shares it should work. is this possibnle with server 03? or should i try server 2000 or are they the same in this case?
