Preview on OS X using local files on NT4 volume - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I'm using Dreamweaver MX on Jaguar 10.2.6. I've got this problem previewing files that are stored on an NT server. I connect to the server using Samba, i.e., via Connect To Server...smb://... The issue seems to be that dreamweaver doesn't put in /Volumes/ in the front of the path when it calls up the file to be previewed in the browser. If I type Volumes/ between file:/// and the Share name in the address bar, it works.

    Default Preview on OS X using local files on NT4 volume

    I'm using Dreamweaver MX on Jaguar 10.2.6. I've got this problem previewing files that are stored on an NT server. I connect to the server using Samba, i.e., via Connect To Server...smb://... The issue seems to be that dreamweaver doesn't put in /Volumes/ in the front of the path when it calls up the file to be previewed in the browser. If I type Volumes/ between file:/// and the Share name in the address bar, it works. I tried to edit the Site, typing the path in the way it should be, but Dreamweaver didn't find the files when /Volumes/ was in the path. Any ideas? Using a Volume via afp, i.e., going to another mac, works fine.

    Figured out a solution:

    1. Go to Site>Edit Sites
    2. Choose Site that needs the tweak
    3. Choose testing server
    4. Server Model: None
    5. Access: Local/Network
    6. Testing Server Folder: Same as ever, the root of your site. In my case: WEBSERVER:public_html:
    7. URL Prefix: file:///Volumes/WEBSERVER/public_html/
    8. Hit "OK" and she's all set.
