I got no response from this, but as I was looking for my net problems
I ran across a 'windows-like' 'map a drive' idea for linux. I finally
got that to work so I could mount a win box shared folder in
home/netmount. In konq I can see all the pix files in there, and the
dir is in home, just like any other dir, it would seem.

BUT - geeqie does NOT think there are any files in home/netmount - so
I still can't see any pix on the win box. Is there something strange
about 'mounted' files compared to 'on-disk' files, so they become
invisible to some pgms?

If you know of another runs-on-UB pgm that is convenient for looking
through hundreds of pix easily, and DOES see net files, PLEASE let me
know. I presume I'm not the first person who would like to see pix on
a remote comp...

As always, thanks...
