Hi experts,

I have several Windows XP boxes in a LAN connected to a Linux server. All the machines have a network drive mapped to a drive letter, say K: is mapped to /home/share/subdir.

I'm now experimenting with Vista and would like to create the same mapping. This works fine as long as I map a letter to the root of a share on the server, but I'cant map it to a subdirectory. In other words, /home/share works fine, but I can't map it to /home/share/subdir. The "Browse" button in the "Map Network Drive" remains greyed out so I can select a subdirectory.

Any suggestions?
