If you're using Active Directory, then this page tells you how to do it.
http://www.winnetmag.com/WindowsSecurity/Article/ArticleID/7459/WindowsSecurity_7459.html
(Read the 4th question down)

or this:
http://www.winnetmag.com/WindowsScripting/Article/ArticleID/4818/4818.html
(See Task #8 : Testing for Group Membership)

If you not using AD, then there is a tool in the NT4 Resource Kit called "IsMember" that you can use in a batch file to conditionally map drives.



Hope that helps,

To map drives based on group membership, you can use ifmember.exe from the W2k Resource Kit. If you don't have the Resource Kit, you can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/new/ifmember-o.asp
While I'm at it, another common thing are network printers; if you want to map those automatically, too, have a look at con2prt.exe (from the NT Zero Administration Kit, still working fine in W2k/XP).

Zero Administration Kit
http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/Recommended/Featured/NTZAK.asp

To map a network printer:
con2prt.exe /c \\PrintServer\PrintShare
("/cd \\printserver\share" to install it as default printer; /f to delete all existing connections)

How to Use Con2prt.exe to Connect to a Network Printer
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=181663

A script solution could then, for example, look like this:

====8<----[Logon.cmd sample]----
REM *** ifmember.exe sets errorlevel 1 if the user is member of the group!
ifmember.exe YourDomain\SomeGroup
if not errorlevel 1 goto EndSomeGroup
net use X: \\FileServer\SomeGroupShare
con2prt.exe /c \\PrintServer\SomeGroupPrinter01
:EndSomeGroup
====8<----[Logon.cmd sample]----

@CleanupPing:

Since I first suggested the use of the utility in the NT Reskit, and oBdA gave a good example of how to use it, I suggest an even split.
