Username/Password Requests When Sharing Printer & Files From w2K Server To XP

    I'm wondering if someone could shed some light on my issue that I have with
    my network. I'm currently running W2K Server and I have several XP Home/Pro
    machines that are not logging into my W2K Domain - however- they are all
    under the same workgroup name. I've got a printer and some files shared from
    my W2K Server and I can print to the printer and view the shared files fine.
    My problem is when I reboot each of the workstations and I try and print or
    access the mapped shared folders I am always presented with a
    username/password dialogue box. If I fill it out with the correct user/pass
    all is ok until I reboot again. I have also tried selecting (remember
    password) check box everytime the 'need username/pass' pops up but no go. My
    windows 98 machines work fine and when I login to the domain the printer and
    shares are fine. Is there anyway to set this up for my XP machines (by
    avoiding to login to my domain) so that they will remember the shares and
    printer with it always asking me for a username and password?

    Thanks for any help,
