Common support files possible.

We run a net work system and would like to have AutoCAD at all our workstations to read off the same Acad.lsp & Acadr14.lsp. Right now each station reads off its own hard drive and thats a nightmare when it comes time to change the files.
Any suggestions? Comments?
Thanks

Make directories on the network drive that all workstations can access and
make each workstation support search path include those directories. Make
sure that each workstation is void of the lisp and other routines once that
is complete so that they are actually accessing the network files and not
the local files.

Thanks John,
I made a directory on the network and moved my acad.lsp and acadr14.lsp to that folder, then added a search path in autocad for that directory.
Works perfect!

If you make the first path under the support search path, you don't need to
worry about taking the file off the machine. Once AutoCAD has read the
file, it won't read another one.
