How do you create a 'Folder Shortcut' in Windows Explorer?

I need to create a 'Folder Shortcut' in Windows Explorer in Windows 2000. I don't mean a mapped drive, just a Folder Shortcut to a shared network folder (it will end up as a first-level object under My Network Places).

"OK, figured it out.

Go to the 'My Network Places' folder, and double-click on 'Add Network Places', then just browse for the folder and hit OK."

"You see 'Favorites' section in left pane.

Drag your folder and drop it in this 'Favorites' section.

A link (shortcut) will be created in the tree structure of 'Favorites'.

Next time you start windows explorer - you can just open your folder by clicking the icon in this Favorites section."
