Hi Stephan,

Alas, Windows 3.1x does not support UNC names, so this is not an option,

I don't know how much work that would be, pretty much I think. I'll have
a look into it. I'd have to work network-driver level though...

3.0 came out over two years ago; time for an upgrade :) Besides, have a
look at the current wishlist:

- Run program in DOS session from menu or shortcut
- Support macro's in shortcuts
- Undo function in icon windows/explorer
- Refine tree update
- Recent Documents menu
- 'Send To' menu
- Format floppy disk
- Network Neighborhood (tnx for the suggestion!)
- Drag items from Start Menu properties dialog to
  icon windows or desktop.
- New File Browse dialog
- Load user cursors (.cur) files
- LFN support
