WebDAV

Here at CERN we use AFS for our home directories on Linux, but the windows stuff all uses DFS with https webdav voodoo.

Discovered on Ubuntu 10.04 that if I save a nautilus bookmark with:

davs://USERNAME@dfs.cern.ch/dfs/Users/U/USERNAME dfshome

it totally fails to connect. The correct syntax is simply:

davs://dfs.cern.ch/dfs/Users/U/USERNAME dfshome

and put in *both* your username and password when prompted.
Oh, and they're stored in ~/.gtk-bookmarks incase you need to edit them :-)
