Question Windows 2000 network passwords

Does anyone know if there is a way to save network passwords in Win2000 Pro like you can in XP under the user accounts in the control panel? I know one solution would be logging into the domain at startup, but for several reasons I'd rather log into the local machine and then save my domain password for certain workgroups, etc.
(i.e. \\aworkgroup\aprinter)
Any help would be much appreciated.

Nope, the network passwords are saved on the domain controller(s) not the local machine, the only way to log onto the machine and not to log onto the network is using a local username and password.
