"My networks places", by default, is represented by a folder called NetHood, found in the user's home directory. You can change this directory by modifying a Windows registry key found at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders.

From ZIP or RAR c:\Documents and settings\<your username>\My Network Places

Inside each network folder there is a target.lnk that does the magic for windows
