WebDAV using "Web Folders" as a client (I think... definetely not
IIS, I don't have it.)
Windows XP is what I'm looking at... I don't think web folders
were supported for 2000.
In WinXP, you can map a WebDAV url to a drive letter and access
it from a DOS window, or any other win32 program.
That's not a shell extension (unfortunately; it would have been
really cool if shell extensions worked at that level.)

Personally, I think it was wise of MS to not put a full
blown webdav client in the kernel.
