Network drive says disconnected, but automatically reconnects at logon

I am running Windows XP Pro at work and we have about 5 different
network drives already mapped. One of the drives was F: and that is
the same drive my flash drive needed, so I disconnected the network
drive on F: and remapped it onto P:. Now when I start Windows, both F:
and P: will map the same network drive, and I have to disconnect F:
every time I want to access my flash drive. How do I get the network
drive to stop mapping on F:, is there a command I need to remove in
the boot file or something?

Thank you

Try this:

"Disabling an Inactive Persistent Connection"
