can't access the network through nautilus


Hi,
my FC2 is part of a windows network called (for the sake of this thread) "MSHOME".

Now I stupidly overwrote my "MSHOME" shortcut in my $HOME directory which had been set up when I installed nautilus.
I could easily get the shortcut back by uninstalling and reinstalling nautilus, but nautilus has so many dependencies that it's going to be a really long and painful process and not really worth my bother.

Is there a nice and easy way to recreate that shortcut without using another third party software?

Cheers,
Micah

Dependencies are not an issue, if you are going to reinstall the software. For example:

rpm -e --nodeps nautilus
yum -y install nautilus

However, this will not magically recreate a shortcut that you had. The only way to get one back is to restore it from backup.
