Hi John. If the user is only allowed to select ONE file, then you could do 
it by changing the TCA "type" from a "group" to a "input", and then add 
linkwizard to that field.. Using this method, it refers directly to the file 

-- cut --
  "myfield" => Array (
   "exclude" => 1,
   "label" => "blabla",
   "config" => Array (
    "type" => "input",
    "size" => "30",
    "wizards" => Array(
     "_PADDING" => 2,
     "link" => Array(
      "type" => "popup",
      "title" => "Link",
      "icon" => "link_popup.gif",
      "script" => "browse_links.php?act=file&mode=wizard",
      "JSopenParams" => 
-- cut --
