An error occured f:to \\Pserever\homedrive

Microsoft Windows Network : No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept.

Sounds as if you are running XP Pro as the computer with the Mapped Drive and that error message is correct as XP Pro will only support 10 concurrent connections. If you want more than the 10 concurrent connections connected you'll need to either switch to a MS Server Platform with enough licenses to support as many clients as you have or use one of the Server Nix's that are available.

I believe HAL 9000 is correct. You will need to upgrade the operating system from a "workstation" version TO a "server" version. A host computer running 2k/xp pro can only host 10 concurrent sessions.

If you have too much users, you should consider setup Linux server and use samba on linux server. You will skip all license charges.
Google, type samba server, you can find tons information. or
