How to create shortcut to network location with password?

The network location is \\xp\folder$

Whenever I try to connect, it prompts me for username and password. The xp computer's account only has a username and blank password.

How do I make a shortcut on my win7 computer to \\xp\folder$ with username and blank password already embedded?
