Alfresco user/pw must match AD user/pw for Map Network Drive

My end-users are using Windows XP Professional PCs and the Alfresco Community Labs 3c application is hosted on a RHEL 5.2 server. Each of the end-user Windows XP PCs are tied to Microsoft's Active Directory for user authentication during login.

Alfresco is not tied to our Active Directory setup in any way (that I am aware of). Yet, when I attempt to use the 'Map Network Drive…' function from any of the Windows XP Professional PCs, the only way this action will succeed is if the Alfresco username/password exactly matches the user's Active Directory username/password.

I don't even know where to begin diagnosing this issue. I have no idea why the Alfresco username/password would need to be identical to the Active Directory username/password. No attempt has been made to do any sort of synchronized user authentication between the two areas (Active Directory and Alfresco).

Does anyone have ANY idea why this would be? I would greatly appreciate any helpful advice or suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance!!
