Subject: Mosaic - can I make it access files without copying them.

Hello,

We are using mosaic here at work to view our own documents, 
frameMaker docs, info files etc.  All of the files are local to 
our network - we have no www internet connection.

Whenever Mosaic tries to view a file, it first copies it to /tmp and calls 
it baaa000.xyz or something similar. This would be fine, but some for some
of our non-html files this renaming breaks the hypertext links within the 
file.

Is there any way I can stop mosaic from copying the file and get it to 
access the actual file?

BTW we don't run any kind of httpd server either.

regards,
John Creasey.
