Hi All,

I've noticed something strange with a drive mapping to a samba share,
where it "disappears" when viewing is attempted via the MS SQL
Enterprise Manager console.  
The drive appears in "My Computer" and can be accessed via, NT4,2K,XP,9x
& dos.  
When attempting to use restore a backup file from a disk device, all M$
mapped drives appear, however the samba 3.0.2-2 is sadly missing.  
It appears that using the UNC path is a part work around.
