W7 "My Document" redirct error

when I try to add a network location to the Document libraries it says " This network location can't be included because it is not indexed."
I want to be able to locate each user "My Documents" out on the network instead of there profile.
Is there a way around this?

Are you trying to do Folder Redirection or simply add it to the Library?

I'm just trying to add it to the library.

It does not support network locations unless there is some other indexing going on. Looked into it a while ago for a customer but never got it working. You can try and trick the system into thinking a network is a local drive:
Is indexing an option? What does that intail? Its on a 2003 file server.
using the link you provided using method 2.
 I am getting a error message stating that "the system can not find the path specified"  but I can do a dir command and see the network drive. So I am thinking it can not find the folder I deleted on the C: because if I don't delete it and run the command it says "cannot create file when that file already exists"

I figured it out myself
thanks for all the input though
Could you explain in detail how you got this to work GoHuskers?

I will try to remember
`indexing has to be off
`you have to go into "My Documents" and then into properties.

I attached a picture
if this doesn't help let me know and I'll think a little deeper
