I would like to have my CD Rom drive letter changed from D to E when a log on to my computer as a certain user. I would like it to remain the same for the other user profiles.

Using the Disk Administrator, you can assign a new drive letter to the CDROM.  I don't believe that it is possible to change it on a session-by-session basis.  Can you get by using the SUBST command?  You can setup a login script to run:

SUBST E: D:\

when you login, and

SUBST E: /D

when you logout.
