JSI Tip 0192 - \\ServerName\ShareName\Directory on NT and 95.

Windows NT's SUBST command can map a drive letter to a directory below a share (see tip 067) but W95 can not.

Both operating systems do supported UNC names below a share as in \\ServerNamer\UserShare\UserName where the share is UserShare and UserName is just a sub-directory.

You can use this convention at the command line and you can also use it in shortcuts.
