[Samba] Mapping a drive letter to a Samba share

The backslash is not a valid character for a share name.  You might be able
to have a share named "C$" and set the path = /foo, then create a symlink
named /foo/inetpub/mailroot/Pickup which points to /pickup.

Doing it that way would mean that \\server\C$\inetpub\mailroot\Pickup is
actually the same as \\server\pickup.

    comment = Other Pickup, Same Target Directory
    path = /pickup
    read only = No
    guest ok = Yes
    guest only = Yes
Now, C$ is standard UNC for the root directory on Windows ( C: ).  The
"Pickup" share works great.  However, the share with "C$" in the title gives
me a "Network name could not be found" error dialog.
