Funny thing is it generates some kind of index cause I get some hits 
3 (17 meg) using UNC  vs 309 (50 meg) using mapped drive

Spidering follows links, where fs just follows the directory structure.  I
think you want FS, unless you are indexing a web site and you just want to
index things that can be followed by hyperlinks.

I thought we found that swish could not index UNC paths.  Mapping it to a
drive letter is a good solution, I'd think.
