Default Net Use

I am trying to create a batch file that will Create a daive mapping when the computer starts up. First I will tell you I have tried the gui's way of mapping a network drive, I tell it to remember the credentials, but it always forgets the password. I have also tried the net use /savecred(entials). My batch file is posted below, I can get it to all work except when i try to push along the password. the problem I am having is that the directions on the internet dont have an example of the password switch being used. From what I have read the switch is [password| *] everytime i enter it tells me that my password, or whatever is in that spot either my password or *, is not a recognizable internal command.

@echo off
net use /delete w: >nul
net use w: \\(server)\lantalk password:***** \user:*****

Default Re: Net Use

Use this

net use w: \\(server)\lantalk password /user:*****
Replace password with the actual password.
There is no switch for the password variable, it's just expected to be after the UNC path.
