Mapping to CIFS share - do I need to do nbtstat -a always?

I am trying to connect to an Alfresco 3.2 (running on Windows 2003 server) space from my Windows XP machine through a CIFS share.

It looks like I have to run
nbtstat - a <<ALFRESCO_SERVER_IP

every time I restart my machine to connect to the share. Is there a way to persist this information and not have to run the nbtstat -a every time I reboot?

I have tried
nbtstat -a ALFRESCO_SERVER_IP
net use X: \\SERVER_NAMEa\Alfresco\SPACE_NAME /user:<ALFRESCO_USER_NAME> /persistent:yes

This keeps the mapped drive between reboots but I still have to run nbtstat -a for my client to "see" the Alfresco CIFS share.

TIA
