Mapping Local Drives Win98 SE

If I share a folder on my own PC and then try to MAP it as a drive, Windows kicks up an error.

Is there a fix available or a way around making this work.  I know it seems odd to map a local shared folder, but it is to keep an installation uniform throughout several PC's.

Many thanks
