Putting intranet file paths in a custom URL Field

Is there any way to modify the validation code behind the URL Field in order to make it allow file paths of shared folders on our intranet?

When I try to put the following path into a custom field (based on the URL Field),

\\server\folder\path

I get "not a valid URL"

I have also tried the following format:

file:///\\server\folder\path

I figured it out. I needed to use this format:

file://///server\folder\path

(which works fine in IE, although FF doesn't seem to recognize it as a real link).

I am looking for the same thing. I got your solution to work as far as to being allowed to insert the link. But regardless of which browser I try, I click the link in the ticket. Does anybody ells have a solution to this?
