A. A bug exists in Windows 2000 which will not be fixed before its Release To Manufacturing. Normally you can subst a drive letter for a folder, be it local or remote. If you subst a drive letter for a remote folder, e.g.:
C:\> <b>subst h: \\titanic\home\savillj</b>
When you try and access H: you get error:
<font color="#800080">The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.</font>
To work around the problem use net use instead, e.g.
C:\> <b>net use h: \\titanic\home\savillj</b>
A knowledge base article Q218740 will be available for this (but its not out yet).
