I accidentally dragged out the Network link in the left pane of Finder. I've tried going to the Computer page and dragging it back in, but it won't let me! How would I get it back in?

Incidentally when I go to the network page in the Go menu it shows no networks or computers. just like it's empty. I hope the 2 are related and easily fixable. I like my network :(

And for some reason my dad changed the name of the Workgroup on the PC's which is why I couldn't see them! Everythings good.

I suppose the final question I have is how do I get the network drives to mount automatically on boot up? That would be nice!

mount all the network drives to which you wish to connect, and then do this:

1) Open up System Preferences, and go to Accounts.
2) in the Accounts pane, click on the Login Items tab
3) click on the little "+" button
4) browse for the HD(s) you want to mount on log in, and click "Add"

this is one of my main issues with osx, its way too easy to screw up your network or your home folder.

I did this very same thing a month or two ago and I never figured out how to get my network tab back on my finder. It always bugged me since using the Connect to Server function isnt nearly as easy. But thanks to this thread I have it back!!! Thanks guys!
