Extremely simple way to access local file system

This two liner is not considered anything built to win a prize, but it works 100% in a MS Windows driven environment, unless the user has manually gone in and deleted explorer.exe. I use it on our intranet home page labelled "Windows File System". Users love it because it enables them to launch any other app from Notes...the best part is the end user thinks it's some cryptic code that accesses the Windows API. Anyway, it works on NT 4.0, 95, 98, 2000, and ME.
