Is is possible for a JFileChooser to display network drives if they exist, or am I limited to the drives on the local machine?

As far as JAVA is concerned, if a network drive is mapped to a drive letter (and I am talking about Windows here because I am not sure about Linux), then JAVA will see it as a local drive. So JFileChooser should allow you to browse into them.
