On the official Thecus website I found out how to map a windows XP network drive to the N299.
Surprisingly easy (and in a way you might expect when using windows).
In the Thecus N299 I allowed all access to all maps on the N299 (assign this map per map).
In windows I opend explorer choose map network drive: \\192.168.1.100\video this maps to the video map.
I tried \\192.168.1.100 so without a map as a kind of general acces but this didn't work. However if you open explorer and there you enter \\192.168.1.100 than you get to go to all maps. Unfortunately you can not map to the root of the N299. Either you keep entering the IP address in explorer or you map to each seperate map on the N299.
I just thought to share my experience for other starting users of the N299

You don't have to enter IP address - just set a simple host name (default: N299) and and use it like: \\[your_hostname]
You can also place a shortcut on your desktop to this location. Mapping root directory of any PC is not allowed on Windows.
