In OS 9 there was a feature in the chooser when you went to mount someone else's computer, over a network, that allowed you to automatically mount that drive when you started up your computer. Is there a way to do this in OS X?

From the help file on your Mac...

'In the Finder, choose Connect To Server from the Go menu. Connect to the server, log in, and select the volume.

Open System Preferences and click Login Items. Click Add and locate the server in the Recent Servers folder in your home Library folder.

Each time you log in to Mac OS X, the login dialog appears for you to connect to the server.'
