I'm trying to map a drive to a SharePoint 2 site which is a document library.  I copied and pasted the address of the Explorer View of the document folder to a mapped network drive but once mapped, it only displays a folder with a file named after the entire document library...looks like a text file.  Any ideas?

http://<server url>/<folder name>. It should match what you'd get navigating the location in IE. Change any %20 back to spaces and do not use forms or all items in the path.

Yes. Spaces are allows I use SBS 2008. I can map to one of my document libraries using http://companyweb/shared documents/connectex. Just remember if you using net use to put the complete path in double quotes, if it has a space in it.
