That part makes sense.  But my problem is that the shares don't seem to be
available to the IIS service consistently.  For example, I map the drive to
L:... but, when I try to access L: via FuleSystemObject I get the typical
file/path errors that come up when a path doesn't exist.

So, I think that for some reason the share is only local to the desktop and
not available to the WebServer.
