Is it possible to create a group policy that only posts a
shortcut on the desktop and points to an already present
resource?

I have not done it myself but you could try creating a batch file that copies the
shortcut .lnk file from a network share to c:/documents and settings/all
users/desktop folder on a computer. Then run that batch file as a startup script via
Group Policy which would be part of "computer" configuration. Of course the target
computers would all need to have the all users profile on the same drive and the
shortcut would need to point to the proper path/drive on each computer. You could
copy a shortcut from and existing installation that has the necessary configuration.
I am not much of a scripting guy and there may be better solutions but it may
ork. --- Steve
