I feel bad about not finding this answer myself as I know how to do 
it with Win XP.  My searching skills seem to be rusty.


How do I get my new Win XP box to talk to me FreeBSD Server?

When I try to map a drive I get :
  "The account is not authorized to log in from this station."

What I think the answer is:

I think it's the "Plain Text Password" issue.  I've dealt with it before 
on Win 98 but can't figure out how to configure Win XP to allow a 
Plain Text Password.

I've been searching for a few hours as I know it must be a common 
issue and the answer is there somewhere.  If you can point me in 
the right direction it would be a great help.
