Question re: Icon to launch Internet Explorer

The post last week about launching external programs from a Pro/E Icon got
me thinking and I figured out a way to launch Internet Explorer with a
specific file as it's home page.

"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe"
D:\\website\\mech-eng-fset.html

Is there a way to change the last part of this command to go to that file
without having to mount it to a drive letter?

In my case the drive letter mapping is something like this:
\\eng-home\users\dhaigh
This directory contains the directory website with the file mech-eng-fset.html

I was hoping that the following would work, but it doesn't:
"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe"
\\\\eng-home\\users\\dhaigh\\ech-eng-fset.html
