NETLOGON/SYSVOL share???

Specs: win 2000 svr, 600/256

I have a practice home network, Win2000Svr with AD, DNS , NAT/RRAS.

when i am on the client computer and i search the 'My Network Places' and then click on the server object, i see the share(s) that I have set up, but i also see 2 more folder shares called NETLOGON and SYSVOL, what are these 2 folders? are users who log on on the client computers supposed to see these folders?

Is there an easier way for clients to get to the shared drive i have setup instead of going to 'network places' --> 'entire network' --> 'entire network' --> 'microsoft windows network' --> 'domain name' --> 'server' --> SHARES ??

should i have the desktop on the client computers not to show 'my network places'?

That site explains the sysvol and netlogon folders. You can stop them from being shared.

There is an easier way to get to the shares and that's by creating shortcuts to them on the client desktops. Open the shares the way you described or by clicking start, run, type \\IP_address of the PC w/ the shares and press enter. The shares will apprear. Drag the folders to the desktop of the client machines.
