same thing Jure said.. you can have multiple files, but they MUST point to 
the net file and shared data EXACTLY the same way.. unless there's a 
particular reason for multiple files, one file avoids the potential for a 
conflicting change on a separate file, and it's easier to maintain one file 
than multiple files

Location of cfg file is not important.
What is written in file is what counts.

I have cfg files on local computers.
In c:\app\ folder.

But all configurations must point to SAME folder for net file.
You must have SAME value in "NET DIR" field.

If you use mapped drives, they must be mapped on same letter on all
You can not have net dir as "w:\app\net\" on one and "x:\app\net" on other.
Also can not mix "x:\app\net" and "\\server\samba\app\net"
