Thanks for the Input.

But:

I work for a small company that has Linux in server room but Win98 on
the desktops.  I am trying to lay the ground work for replacing
Windows.  There is always resistance to change so I would want to remove
any perceived shortcomings to ease the transition.

I am afraid that asking uses to manually enter the name of the share
will be seen as a step backwards.
