SBS 2008 'Public' Share conflicts with 'public' DFS namespace

What is the builtin share 'Public' on a sbs2008 install? I upgraded a sbs2003 network that had a dfs namespace called 'Public". When I added the sbs2008 box to the namespace It told me there was already a share called Public. Now from the network \\sbs2008box\public reveals my DFS shares and everything works just fine. What am I missing from not having the Default public share?

nothing really. by defualt, public shares the 'public' users documents folder. c;\users\public.....'

You dont particularly need it so I wouldnt worry about it. make sure you disable the default public share and the DFS based one will be fine.

I disabled the built in Public share and it doesn't seem to have any neg effect on the network.

Thanks
