 Subject:  [off-topic] mapped drive through a vpn tunnel

I know this is somewhat off topic from the m0n0wall list server, but
being a member and user of m0n0wall, I have seen some pretty
high-speed people on this list who can hopefully answer my question

We are moving some of our application servers off site to a co-lo. In
testing, we are having a problem running a legacey application, which
happens to only work properly on a windows 95/98 box. This is a long
story, but not really part of the question.

The question posed to me:

If we leave this one box at our main office, can we map a drive letter
from the windows 98 box --> to a server at the co-lo ? My first
response was no. But in thinking about this, I was wondering if I
could use a VPN tunnel connecting the two networks ?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
