For a persistant network connection, right click on "My Computer" and hit 
"Map network Drive" (Or open any explorer window and hit Tools --> Map 
network drive)  Fill in the details as needed and check the "Reconnect at 
logon" checkbox.  This will make sure it's reconnected next time you log on. 
You should even be able to use a different username and password if you need 
to by hitting the "Connect using a different username" link near the bottom.
