Combining shares or folders

Hi,
Is there anyway in WIN2K or WIN2003 to combine shares/folders so that I can open one share/folder and display the content off all combined share/folders.

My problem: I have a filserver with 1.6Mio documents (1.1Mio Folders), and at times I want to email certain documents to clients. These documents are updated by the departments periodically - I now have to look for all the documents every time and it would be nice to have a share where the content of those selected folders are displayed!

Any help is appretiated
Thanks

how about this way:

create a new share folder and have shortcuts to other shared folders in that folder? so in a way, you are looking at all the shares from a single location.

Have you looked at DFS (distributed file system) in Win2K?

You could create a DFS root which contains the shares from the other file servers.

Was not able to it with DFS alone, but the topic did widen my Knoledge base - thanks for that! I also wrote an ASP application and in combination with DFS was able to solve my problem!
