Yes, but there are some strange gotchas (at least with Navigator 3.01). To
get the windows path \\comp\share\ (that is, the "root directory" of a
share), you have to use file:////comp/share//, not file:////comp/share/ or
file:////comp/share. file:////comp/share/dir works fine. Of course, Win32
Netscape also uses file:///c|/path/file for the Win32 path c:\path\file. 
Lynx should probably understand these conventions sooner or later.
