Need help with the Windows 2003 terminal server drive and printer mapping

have the following requirements.  

1) 2003 terminal server runs in Application mode in Windows 2003+2000 AD network.  
2) When users TS into the server and run this particular application (say someapp).  This someapp requires C: drive mapped to a unique share.  The user's local printer is mapped with unique name (i.e. computername+username).

How can I accomplish this?

My plan is to install the terminal server in D: drive and change the C: drive's drive letter to something.  On the AD user properties, map the C: drive to a unique share on the TS server itself or anywhere.  Printer- needs help though I have some idea.   Here is the problem. Once you install the windows 2003 server, I can't change the C: drive's driveletter to something else.  Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Windows does this by default, you cannot rename the logical drive that houses the System and Boot partition.

You could:

Create 2 partitions,, C and D, then install Windows 2003 and do so on the D drive

Actually I can rename the C drive.  MS has a KB article on it.  What I want to know is how do I make sure that whenever users terminal session to the server, their C drive is mapped to a share?


Thanks
