At the place where this system is being used, the server is running Windows
2000 server, the client machines are now all using XP Pro, and it is working
successfully using mapped drives.

Would this have an affect on the speed of the system, using a mapped drive
instead of the aliases.conf file?

I managed to get it working here at my place between the 2 machines using
the aliases.conf file method, so thanks for that help.
