JSI Tip 4329. Your Windows 2000 home folder mapping to a downlevel SMB server no longer works?

If a user's home folder is mapped to a share on a SMB server, like Samba, the drive does NOT connect at logon?

If you have installed Service Pack 2 (SP2) or the Q262890 hotfix, Windows 2000 will NOT send your credentials in clear text, which is required by most downlevel SMB servers.
