Can the W2K indexing service index network drives?

I'd like to index my personal folder on the network.  However, the indexing service doesn't seem to want to do it. The help file seems to indicate that you can index "remote" drives, but when entering the drive letter and UNC path it says invalid drive?

yup. drives are mapped at each logon.  The browse button in the add directory area lets you pick it too.
