Why not just create a group name called "Help?"
I know that sometimes Apple does weird things like this. I believe it's normal behaviour though.
Another example of this weirdness is in 10.7. When you want to connect to a WebDAV share, the address MUST look like this now:
Before, in 10.6.8, you could just set up the webdav share and connect to it using the share name without the webdav in the middle. Like this: https://server.example.com/sharename
There may be a config file you can mess with to fix that, but my hunch is that it's pretty integral to the functionality of the sharing system. Messing with it could be disatrous.

Thanks for the reply Graham. The main reason I want to call the folder something different than the group name is because I'm sharing it to two different groups that have different names. It's just frustrating because it used to work fine prior to 10.5 but now it's fudged up. Some things are better left unchanged. I'll check around and see if there is a file that can be modified. Thanks again!

One more thought... Why not make a share that's not a group folder. ...just a regular share... Then in workgroup manager, set it up so that when your users log in the share automatically connects? Itll be like a group share only not!
