Logging in to netbios server
I've just purchased a new laptop, running Vista. Had a 'bear' of a time
getting Vista configured appropriately to recognize my network. Now that I've
accomplished that, I can't seem to 'log in' to my main file server. This
server was built by my step son and is running FreeBSD. It works
wonderfully.........but the login prompt requires 'only' a user name and
password. Unfortunately, Vista seems to add the machine name
'AcerLaptop/username'......which makes my login attempt invalid. Can anyone
tell me how to tweak Vista to 'remove' that machine name from the login
dialog?

Re: Logging in to netbios server
Yes........ I have tried that, Robert, but to no avail. This got rid of the
'machinename', but it still adds the "\" and that is apparently enough to
mess up my login. I'm thinking there must be 'some' way of editing this, or
forcing windows to drop the machinename. I suppose Vista is defaulting for
connection to a 'domain', but isn't helping me out, one bit!

Thank you for the reply...........
