Here's what I want to do:  In FolderA on ServerA, I want to create a Sub-Folder that actually opens FolderB on ServerB.  I've been reading about reparse points (junctions and mount points) and Dfs, and I can't find a clear answer.  Is this possible?  Here's a visual:

\\ServerA\FolderA\Sub-Folder\* => \\ServerB\FolderB\*

Sure. You must install dfs on the server A and add a link to the folder on server B.
