Answer is probably no but still want to check:

I often use Windows Explorer with the treeview on the left (what you get when you hit Windows-E) to switch between folders. On my desktop I have a couple of shortcuts to often visited network locations. Can I get those to display in the tree as well? Now it only displays 'real' folders, not the shortcuts to folders.

Yes, it IS possible to cutomise the links that appear on the side-bar in Windows Explorer in Windows XP.

There is an excellent guide on the forums at pcreview. Check out the first reply.
