How do I set up vb.net over a vpn and office network connection?

I would like to be able to set up my Visual Studio .net 2003 to have my vb.net project files to go to a network folder that I can access at work thru the network and from home thru the vpn.  I have a the vpn connection and office network all set up.  But, when I try and open one of my project I get a error that reads:

"the project location is not fully trusted by the .NET runtime.  This is usually because it is either a network share or mapped to a network share not a on the local machine.  if the output path is under the project location, your code will not execute as fully trusted and you may receive unexpected security exceptions."

Then if I try and run and debug I get errors connection errors.

How can I set this up so that I can work from both Home and the Office?

Any advice would be great.

in windows xp go to control panel - administrative tools- microsoft .net framework 1.1 wizards (could also be 2.0) - then goto
adjust .net security, pick one of the options then goto to local intranet - set to full trust

The only way I was able to get this to work was to mapped a network drive.  Is this the only way I can set up to work with intranet?

Just checking for when I am setting this up at home.  At the office np.  I am sure it will not be an issue from home.  It's just I do not have a static IP and I am using Cisco VPN Client software and I am sure if I map a Network drive that I will get an error for that dirve when I do not have the clinet software working.
