I had the same problem on my WINXP. I found the desktop.ini file in my
"Autostart" (or "Startup" in english WINXP versions i guess) and many
other folders in my profile directory.
While these files on local profiles are checked as "secret" on
server-based profiles they are not. I changed them to secret and
everything went fine.

I'm sure this is simple, but I haven't been able to find the answer. When I try and mount a Samba drive from my Solaris 2.6 box to
my WindowsNT 4.0 SP3 box, it just waits for about 2 minutes, until finally it shows up. I'm getting log messages in my Solaris
console that look like:
t2384 LOOKUP REQUEST: Fri Mar 26 19:00:00 1999
t2384 name=desktop.ini map=-hosts opts=nosuid,nobrowse path=/net direct=0
Then after about 2 minutes I get:
Mar 26 19:02:00 myhost automountd: pingnfs: desktop.ini: RPC: Unknown host
Then the drive is visible. But If I go to another drive and go back, I have to go through this whole business again. Anybody know
what's going on and what the solution is? Thanks
