Is there any special program or utility I need to mount any folder as a 'Drive' on my computer?

Generally what you have to do is:

1) Share out the folder (in the properties of the folder)
2) Then map it as a network drive (in the Tools of Windows Explorer)

I presume that there are other ways to do this, but I'm not familiar with them.

The above solution is the only way I know of Mapping a drive.

A few things have to be true to be able to map the drive. You have to have permissions to the folder. If you wish to Map a drive letter to a folder on the local system you will need to use it's network name as the mapping location.
