Anyone running XP SP2 RC1?

I'm not usually one to install beta software, but I broke down and installed Release Candidate 1 of Windows XP Service Pack 2. It's really nifty for its pop-up blocking and ability to say "no, and NEVER ask me again if I want to install this stupid spyware program from Gator Corporation" and so on...

But I have a problem: I can't properly connect to our server, or print to the network printer. I can use the server via VNC just fine, but when I try to browse the D drive of the server from my local machine, it doesn't accept the password.

blah, blah, blah

I figured it out. SP2 has a Windows interface for setting up network logins, instead of a little text file that specified your network identities. Once I discovered this new feature, I had to remember what my user and domain names were for this server, and now it works. Huzzah!
