Hi Sugesh_r,
open a command prompt and type net use ? to get full options, but simply put:
net use k:\ \\server\\share
where k:\ is the local drive to be mapped.

... and to disconnect a drive, you'd type "net use k: /d"

If you need additional credentials ie. to map a server's drive using admin-rights you'd type :

net use * \\server\share /u:domain\username password
