    My Computer > Tools > Map Network Drive

    Alternatively, have a look in the NETLOGON share for logon scripts. You can open them with notepad.

    In Windows 7 you can select 'network location' if you right click the columns in explorer, but I'm not sure about xp.

    It's for XP/Server 2003.

    I've found the UNC path, I've gone to the server. Went into the Command Prompt then used the net share command. This was good enough for me.

    Thanks

    I normally just right click on my computer --> Manage --> shared folders --> in the right pane it then shows you the paths and what its assigned to etc ( you also get sessions etc )
