mapped drive keeps disconnecting XP PC

By leokon ·
I have 20 XP Pro workstations and number of Win95/98/2000 PC's connected to a 2000 server.
After the workstations set idle for a while the mapped
drives are not accessible. When I try to access my share file I receive a message: "Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored". If I restart the workstations,
they reconnect and work fine. However, PC's running Win95/98/2000 don't have that problem, only WinXP PC's do. Any ideas?
