    I m having trouble mapping a drive to an NT4 network share, when ever i try
    mapping a drive to a shared resource on an NT4 machine it does not reconise
    my password, Yet it i try from an XP machine it works fine..

    I can ping the device
    I can see by browsing to it

    Just when ever i try connecting too it my credentials are rejected

    Any suggestions?

    You're welcome. Jimmy's site has many excellent articles about Vista. The
    article on UAC should be required reading during the oobe for Vista :)
