I can't remember exactly how to do it, but

You need to access the share, in "My Network Places" by using the  "Add 
Network Place" wizard.

When found the icon for the link to the share should show in "My Network 

Then you need to tell Windows to automatically look for network folders. 

This is done in Windows Explorer - under 

Tools ----> Folder Options ---> View 

Place a tick in the check box.

Hopefully this should be all you need to do.

If it doesn't work for you then I guess I can't help you.
