this is true, but i am looking at mounting it, reading the contents,
maybe moving a file to it, or renaming a file... and then closing the
smb share.

i have thought abotu making it a requirement on the users end to have
the directory ready for the application... but thought also about maybe
giving them the option to connect to it and do what it has to do, then
close it... 

i've been doing it the second way, but was wondering if the first was a
viable option or not.
