XP network places and ftp site

I have an internal ftp site. I want my users to have access to it for
downloads only. Everything works fine except I cannot find an easy
way to get it to show up in My Network Places. I can go into Add
Network Place and manually add it, but I want it to show up
automatically - so users don't have to go through the manual steps. Is
there a command line method to add an ftp site to My Network Places?
Thanks!

Regards,
Ken Etter

Kind of ..... stuff in Network Neighborhood is a directory named after
the entry, with a file named target.lnk in it.

So having setup one manually, you'll have the target.lnk file

Create a directory for the user at:

c:\documents and settings\username\nethood\MyFtpSite

copy the target.lnk file you created earlier into the directory.
