Adding Links to Document Library in Sharepoint

I would like to add a link to a network folder to one of our document libraries in Sharepoint. I allowed Management of Content Types for the library and added the Link to a Document content type. However, that appears to only be able to link to a website, not a network folder. I can add a network link to the links section on our Sharepoint homepage so that must be a different type. Is there some other way I can have a shortcut or link to a network folder in a document library? Thanks.

There is a way, you just have to setup a Link to A Document Content Type. The link below is the easiest How-to I found.
