if you just want icons to appear then i would place the network shortcuts in a folder like mydocuments/networkworkshortcuts... then for each shortcut in that folder, right click it and select "send to desktop"... essentially creating a shortcut to a shortcut...

but it should keep a placeholder (so to speak) on your desktop... is that what you're after i take it?...

Under Folder Options I think you need to uncheck "Hide empty connections". You do this through Windows Explorer->Organize->Folder Options->View
