When I try to open a file that is stored on another computer (using Autocad
LT 2000i), the a message appears stating "Cannot find the specified drawing
file. Please verify that the network drive is available and the file
exists."

The drive is available and the file does exist.

How about telling everyone here about your network: What kind is
it? Server? 10/100? How are you accessing the other PC? Mapped
Drive? More details needed if you want help, otherwise you are
just going to get generic answers.

If the computer that stores the file is running a C-Dilla based application
the problem is C-Dilla (the license manager that substitutes the hardware
lock in 2000i applications).
See my message in this newsgroup "Any news about C-Dilla of AutoCAD 2000i
crashing peer-to-peer networks ?".
This problem is known in Autodesk, but at this moment there is no solution.
If anyone has news is welcome.

Network description:
Desktop computers are Win98.
Logon Via an NT4.0 server with SP6.01a.
All but a few computers are running 100Mb.
Access to the other computers is via network neighborhood.
We are not running C-Dilla.

I am able to open a file on another computer by double-clicking the file in a network neighborhood window. This action will automatically start Autocad LT 2000i, as it should, and load the selected file. However, if I already have Autocad running and try to open a file from another network computer, I get the message stated above. Additionally, ever time I try to access the network through Autocad, I am asked for the password to the area I am trying to get to. All other programs only ask for a password if I have yet to access that particular area, and then won't ask again.
