Definite possibility. You may have better luck with JavaScript or a 301/302 Redirect.

I don't think any redirect tactic will work to send a user to a local file.

What's "A://", anyway? your floppy drive?

I used to have one of those too years ago. And I mean, years ago.

I have three developer boxes sitting next to me right now. All have floppy drives. I don't use them, but they're there.
