[TYPO3-english] UNC path in TYPO3 fileadmin on Windows 2003 server

We tried with the junction programm, but it's not possible to mount the
network share. (error: junctions are only supported on ntfs volumes)
The volumes are all ntfs but the junction programm can't seem to check that
on an network share.
I read that this is solved on windows 2008 server but not on 2003 version.
I tried with the 'lockRootPath';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['lockRootPath'] ='Y:\\'; (network share)
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['lockRootPath'] ='Y:\\DIRECTORY\\'; (folder on
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['lockRootPath'] ='\\SERVER01\'; (UNC path)
And then make a absolute filemount... No success

Create an absolute Filemount. Further you should allow access to that by
setting valid lookRootPath or can also use junction.
