Hi I got a problem, I got a windows server with many smb shares and I would like them to stay on the macs desktop even after a reboot or after loosing connection. How do I do this? I got snow leopard.

when you have the drives mounted on the desktop, open up system preferences->Accounts, then go to the "login items" tab - drag the shares into there. they will be automatically mounted :)

good question, try this.

in the Finder
Finder (menu bar)->preferences. then tick "Connected Servers", to show them. then go to your desktop, connect to the shares, find them on the desktop, right click and "Make Alias".

the alias will always stay on the desktop! :)
