I am working on an implementation plan for win98 on my WAN.  I need to find a way to make the C drive disapear from view within the win98 GUI.  I want my users doing everything off of the network, and not even realizing they have a HD.--Kevin

Ouch!  Even I'd like to know the answer to that---
I know each workstation needs access to it's operating system-- how about making the My Computer and Explorer unavailable?

Not an answer yet, but if it works for ya, let me know...

There is a way to hide all the drive under My Computer, but I need the users to be able to see the mapped network drives.

That would work.  I just found another solution as well.  ZEN works from Novell will do it too.  Here are your points for finding that one.
