Oops, my mistake -- the web folder will not appear as a drive; but will 
appear under "My Network Places" using a name/description created by 
the user.  You can drag and drop files to and from the web folder

Mounting web folders (webdav protocol) in Windows 2K Pro or XP:

1. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer).
2. From the menu, select Tools/Map Network Drive.
3. In the "Map Network Drive" window, below the "Reconnect at logon" 
checkbox, you'll find:

Connect using a different user name.
Create a shortcut to a Web folder or FTP site.

The words "Web folder or FTP site." is a link.  Click on it to begin the 
"Add network Place Wizard."

As for server-side information -- webdav and ssl modules are included in 
the default Apache2 installation using the ports system.

Using webdav:

Web server user authentication:

I can't seem to find the SSL certificate how-to I used; but I'm sure you 
can google your way through this part.

Note:  KDE's konqueror is the only easy-to-use webdav client that I've 
found for *nix.

Best of luck,
