Andrew,

Once /mnt/lan/COMPUTER/SHARENAME is mounted it is available to all
applications, so I think you are probably making some sort of mistake
somewhere.

>From the terminal, try running - 

ls -al /mnt/lan/COMPUTER/SHARENAME
Thunar /mnt/lan/COMPUTER/SHARENAME &
nautilus /mnt/lan/COMPUTER/SHARENAME &

And see what result you get.

Regards,
David Collins
