Re: Bash shell extension ?


Well, I don't use Network Neighborhood, so this problem doesn't affect me much
.. However, I have been helping friends set up this extension as well, and I'm
sure they'd like for this problem to be addressed .. If someone manages to
write an executable that handles all possible cases, please let me know so I
can send it around to the people that need/want it .. :)
Thanks again for all your help
-Adam
