10.4: Automate mounting shares from Finder's Sidebar

Or you can drag a subfolder from a mounted server share to the sidebar. Clicking it will mount the share.

That's what I do. Of course, that doesn't answer the need if you want to view the root of a share on one click, but this way at least, you can click > authenticate > then click on the now mounted share to view the root.

I do so as well. I even have multiple subfolders form server share in my sidebar. However, both with AFP and SMB servers, I am able to store the password in Keychain. No need to authenticate every time.
So, it is only: Click on the subfolder in the sidebar and then click on the root of the share (if that is what you want to see).

This will lockup the Finder on reboots.

It will only lock up the Finder on reboot if it has a custom icon. The Finder will try to get the icon before the volume is mounted and it deadlocks. I can't remember whether my QA team file an Apple Radar bug on this or not.
