Hopefully you guys can help me out on this one:

Example; When you right-click on an image and choose 'save image as' the
SAVE PICTURE dialog appears, usually with the five icons on the left side;
Recent, Desktop, Documents, My Computer, My Network Places.

Does anyone know a hack to alter these links (i.e. replace My Computer with
a certain network drive etc.) ?

Hi,

This can be easily accomplished with the help of TweakUI powertoy for Windows XP. Under TweakUI,
navigate to 'common dialog > places bar' and you can specify your custom places here.

Download TweakUI here:

You don't hack My Computer.. you create a network drive shortcut on your
desktop or wherever..

there are some free "Send To" utilities available for downlad on the web.
Just google for XP "send to" or such.
