Question How to create link on desktop to a windows share?


Hi all,
I was wondering how to create a link on my RHEL4 Gnome desktop to a windows network share?

I can do this easily with Ubuntu but redhat is a little different. I can use nautilus and enter smb://network/share and then login fine...but how to create a shorcut on desktop?

Thanks for all your help!!!

***********UPDATE***********

I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!!
Thanks anyway!!
