A. Windows 2000 adds support for Network places that work in a similar method to mapped drives except they are not mapped as drive letters and are instead accessed via the 'My Network Places' branch of the Desktop.
To add a My Network Place just perform the following:
- Start Explorer
- Select My Network Places
- Double click on the 'Add Network Place' wizard
- You will be asked for the location to point to, for example \\titanic\c$ for the C drive of machine titanic.
- Click Next
- You will then be asked for a description for the new network place, e.g. "C drive on Titanic", click Finish
- The new network place will now be listed
The places are actually stored under your user profile in the folder c:\documents and settings\
