Thanks for the suggestion.  I wished it would work in Windows 98.
Unfortunately, Windows 98's version of net use does not have the /user

Here's a few suggestions:
Use a 'Guest User Profile' you can find all kind of documentation for that.

When you map a drive to Netserver, use the 'Login as' part of the mapping
use whatever profile you want. if you Check the box for 'Reconnect at login'
will ask for the right password.

Try this in a Bat file:
net use I: \\QS103ZPFM\QDLS * /USER:USERNAME /persistent:yes

I use this in NT in the Startup Folder, it might work in 98. The '*' makes
ask for a password and '/persistent:yes' makes it permanent. 
Hope this helps,

I heard on the news today that Bill Gates and his wife are
expecting a baby in June. I'm betting that baby will be late.
