Search network drives on SBS2003 from Windows 7

Is it possible to add to the Windows 7 search index on a pc, mapped drives or UNC paths that point to a Share on a SBS2003 server ? We can't see any options for selecting network drives when going in the Modify or Advanced button in Windows'7 search options.  Presently, the search does not return anything when doing a search in Windows 7 from any of these shares. It works fine on Windows XP machines.

Or is it possible to install some sort of Indexing Service on the SBS2003 server for these network shares that the Windows 7 workstations could connect to ? If so, could you explain how.

Thanks.

You can only add them if they are "Available offline" which would then sync all of the data to the local client.

There is a workaround though...
