No, a directory starting with a ! is "magic". It could contain a !boot file (what to do when the filer sees the directory for the first time), a !run file (what to do when the directory is double clicked), a !sprites file (containing the icons, which can also used for the directory itself). See http://www.guidebookgallery.or... for an example.
