    I have some shared directories on my PC that I often need to access from my mac. Is there a way to permanently have them mounted instead of going through the login process after I reboot my mac? I'm running Tiger on the Mac and XP Pro on the PC

    I'm pretty sure once they're mounted you can drag them over to the sidebar in Finder (the top one I think). Or at least I remember seeing something about them adding this with 10.4

    If not, you might just be stuck having to re-mount them from aliases on the desktop.

    If you add them to your start up items, and save the password into KeyChains.

    So, mount the drive, click on System Preferences, Accounts, Click on Start Up items tab, then drag and drop the shared drive that is on your desktop to the list area. Now, when you start up your computer, it will try to mount that drive with the saved password that is in Keychains.

    I use this to mount 3 drives that are shared from my Linux Server.
