Yes, the wiki can do this with InterMap links, but since you're in
a mixed Mac and Windows environment it'll be a little trickier.
We'll want to configure PmWiki to detect the browser type and
change the InterMap mapping to match.

But first, let's figure out exactly what urls you need, especially
from the Mac (as I don't have a lot of experience with Macs and afp:

First, add an entry to local/localmap.txt like the following:

    Distributions:      afp://csdrsrv03/

and then create a PmWiki page that has the text 
"Distributions:2005ESY/filename.doc" (or some other filename that
exists on the server) and see if you can access the file from the
link that results.  If so, then we're well on our way; if not,
let me know what you get back and we'll work from there.
