Shared drive auto assignment change

I have a Windows 2000 Server with several Windows XP Professional clients. I have one shared directory that the server assigns to the clients as G:. We have purhcase some HP printers that have a removal disk drive as part of the printer and G: is a local drive now. How can I change the drive assignment for my shared directory from the server? Activte Directory is in use.

Yes, and the next time they log on it will change to G:  Of course your users will complain because they don't like change.

I know you can do this in ADUC in the Profiles TAB of the User Properties (if that is where it is set).

In the ADUC undere User Profiles I do not see any settting for that shared directory. I do not see anything under the SHARED object portion either. I am not sure where WIndows 2000 Server is setting this SHARE as G: but he is.

I worked around the problem by assigning the shared directory to higher drive so that when the printer assisgns the extra physical drive it will not effect the active shared drive assignment.
