No. The right way is creating system mount points as suggested
in the various READMEs.

Microsoft TS code is more or less part of the OS so they
have possibilities which others only can dream about.

Oh, I don't suggest that...

As I mentioned in my previous mail, there are some sort
of oddities. For example a user logged in via local
windows logon creates a drive mapping. The same user
is logged in via telnet simultaneously. S/He can use that
drive in the telnet session but a `net use' doesn't return
that drive! That's not normal but that's live!
