<title>Adding network folders</title>

<para>
Network folders show up in a special location of &konqueror; and &dolphin; 
called a <emphasis>virtual folder</emphasis>.
This virtual folder is accessed by typing <userinput>remote:/</userinput> in
the location bar or by selecting <guilabel>Network</guilabel> from the 
<guilabel>Places</guilabel> panel. You will then be able to see
any folders which have been previously added and you also will be able to use
the wizard to add new ones.

Speaking of wizards, the Network Folder Wizard aims at being very easy to use.
After opening the wizard you must choose the type of network folder you would
like to access. When you move on to the next screen you will just need to 
fill in the requested information. The final step is entering your username and
login password for the network share you've chosen to access.
</para>
<para>
Below is a list of the information needed by the wizard to create the network
folders. If an option is not

available for a particular folder it does not have to be entered. The &Samba;

<title>&knetattach; Walkthrough</title>


<para>
This will be a quick walkthrough of the Network Folder Wizard. Don't 
blink or you might miss it.
</para>

<para>
Below you see the main window of the Network Folder Wizard. It is here
that we choose what type of folder we want to add or connect to. For 
the purposes of this walkthrough we will be using &FTP;. It contains most
of the options you will encounter while using the wizard.

<para>
OK, so we (as in me) have chosen to add an &FTP; folder. Below you see
an example of the type of information you will need to add for your particular 
&FTP; server. After filling it in we press <guibutton>Save &amp;
Connect</guibutton> 
and wait for the magic. Oh yes, if your server requires validation of some kind
you will be prompted at this point before being allowed to connect.

To get back to our network folders all that is necessary is typing

in the location bar of &konqueror; or &dolphin; or
select <guilabel>Network</guilabel> from the <guilabel>Places</guilabel> panel.

You can even add new folders from the same location by using the 
<guilabel>Add a Network Folder</guilabel> link. Well that brings us to 
the end of our walkthrough (told you it would be quick). I wish you the 
best of luck in your own network folder adventures ;-)
