Create AppleTalk zone sidebar entries for fast access Network
I just found this, and figured it was a redeeming feature of the new Network browsing mechanism in 10.3. Where I work, there are a few dozen AppleTalk zones; this means that browsing through the choices after "Network" can be irksome, especially since the list is dynamic.

However, you can make an alias for the most often used AT zone, and put that in your Finder sidecar just like any other folder -- so now I can jump directly to my building's zone, rather than pulling it out of a long list of zones.

You can also put in shotcuts to directories that are mounted via SMB. Now it can't be the mounted share but a sub directory under the share. However you can put the mounted share in the right side of the Doc to gain quick access. I haven't tried NFS but I would think that would work too. Now this is a big change from 10.2 where only AFP shortcuts would remount them selves.

You can also put shortcuts on your desktop if you like.

Anybody know a way to do this with WebDAV mounted shares? Doesn't seem to work the same way

Unfortunately, this doesn't work very well. You'll find that after a restart - on either machine - the aliases won't work any more. The only way to get reliable aliases under Panther is to mount volumes using the Connect to Server dialog from the Finder's Go menu. Create aliases of the volumes, then you can put them wherever you want.

This should work for most protocals, but Panther networking is very quirky.
