All the windows users I come into contact with would only know network
drives that are associated with a drive letter, and those would have
been set up by some institutional administrator/technician.
Few if any would recognise a UNC.

I'm aware that there are places in windows where forward slashes can
be used in filenames (places like system calls, I think), but I don't
know all the whys and wherefores. Probably best avoided.

I've never enjoyed interworking with MS products—there always seem to
be hiccups (like BOMs, TNEFs, MSCHAP, hiding stuff, etc)—but if you
stick to one side or the other (and make a few small allowances like
in this thread), you should be all right with a program like LP.
