Mount shares by name over VPN

I can't test this but I think you can also add mycompany.com to the DNS Search Domains list in the Network PrefPane. it will automatically try <servername>.mycompany.com if you just enter <servername>

this only works if you select "all traffic over vpn" (in leopard... i think tiger defaults to this).

You're mostly correct by that assumption. Be careful however with OSX versions besides Leopard when specifying search domains that end in .local for the search domain--which a lot of Windows admins like to use for setting up small office domains. Because it conflicts with bonjour/rendevouz, there is special way to do this for panther/tiger. I found this out by it completely bringing my powerbook to halt and unusable within ~10 seconds after OSX startup... I think I had to boot single user to fix it.
