    Does anyone know how to create a "shortcut" icon on the desktop that points and will open to a file share on a network server (Windows AD Server)? I can browse to the server and get to the folder, but i need to create an icon to make it easier for a user...

    Thanks in advance...

    In Terminal, change to your Desktop folder:

    cd Desktop

    Then:

    ln -s /Volumes/<server_mount>/ <foldername>

    ie: I have an SMB Share called Archives, so my shortcut looks like this:

    In /Users/jmxp/Desktop
    ln -s /Volumes/Archives/ Archives

    J
