1.) browseable=no should do it for you -- Start/Run/Sharename creates a
connection, which should allow you to open and view contents.  Browseable
refers only to the share list.

2.) This question is really not related to ntdom; it should really be
posted to the general samba list or comp.protocols.smb.

I know the browseable parameter exists, but that completely hides browsing of the share, where as I just want to remove it's visiblity from the list of shares.  If I goto Start|Run and enter \\server\sharename, I still want to be able to see it's contents in an explorer window and such.  Also, the suffixed $ doesn't keep smbclient from showing it (although I consider this a feature for debugging purposes).
