I know you can open files on the local network, in a separate window, via a web link. I would like a link to point to a shared folder on our network, and open the folder that way.

Research indicates that browsers after IE5 have security settings that prevent this, which I understand for a general web page. But is there script and code for doing it on a local network, on an intranet that would circumvent this? I have three departments using the same folder, and they want access to it - as a work flow thing - from a single button on the home page of our intranet if possible.

Without knowing anything about your setup, all you really need is a shared location and a link, just like a link you would have on your desktop. There isn't really anything special that needs to be done. No need to use your browser at all.
