Mapped Drives require password after restarting computer

Guest

Everytime I restart my computer and try to access a network drive, I am
prompted for my password. I checked the 'Reconnect at logon' box when I
mapped the drive. Is there another setting that needs to be set?

The network server is Debian Linux running a Samba server. I've not had this
issue on XP machines that I have set up before.

Thanks for any help.

Is the XP client running XP Home or Pro? If Pro, Advanced or Simple File
Sharing?
