    Maybe they can see the name of the server their home folder maps to. Ranger (damn it) used to grass up the name of the DC that logged you on each time

    turning off the address bar in explorer would be one way to limit the kids from finding the server names out.

    i know this won't help in this particular case, but its worth bearing in mind.

    AFAIK only applications carrying the Windows logo have to adhere to the GP restrictions

    It also shows in the left hand details info pane in XP, My Computer also gives the location of mapped drives.

    Yes any apps that use the standard Windows file open API should obey group policy. Unfortunatly most GTK+ apps don't seem to use this it uses it's own version that ignores this.
