network view


i'm using nautilus 2.8.2 on Debian.
i have a couple of network related queries.

first, i use the tree view almost exclusively. is there any way to have
the network location that is opened available within this view also? at
present it allows you to drill down into the shared directory but you
don't really have any traditional browsing ability short of editing the
location field. (i guess i'm thinking something similar to windows
explorer's network neighbourhood tree node - sorry). (yes i know i could
mount the share but i don't want to!)

second, is there any reason that nfs shares are not polled? i would also
expect (strong word, i know - sorry again) to see nfs shares come up in
the network window not purely windows shares via smb. my initial thought
is that its probably some nfs security issue and that nfs dirs do not
'advertise' their 'shareability'???

finally, and this is a minor point - i have never been able to get the
background colour/image option to work for the left-side-pane as i
thought it would. i suspect this is by design - but it only works when
the side pane is set to 'Information'. i was wondering if there is a way
for it to work as the background to the tree also.

any suggestions on the above would be most appreciated.

thanks heaps.
