Easiest way is to use a DOS batch file.

net use s: \\server1\source

You can do a lot more - check out this site for more information on getting started with login scripts:

Depending on the number of users, you can also create GPO's and link them to OU's .   Open active directory users and computers and then right click on the room of the domain and select "new- organizational unit".  By setting up seperate OUs for different groups of users, you simplify the management process for adding users.  For example, you can have an OU for accounting, one for standard users, and one for the shipping dept. Once your OU is created, right click on it and then go into properties and then click on the "group policy" tab.  Create a new policy here, then edit it.  To assign a logon script to the OU, expand "user configuration", "windows settings", and then open "logon scripts".  Now you can create a script using Sembee's instructions above.  If you already have users that exist in other OUs then you can simply move them into the new one by using the active directory users and groups snap in.  Remember, your default domain policy overrides your other policies unless you right click on your OU - properties - group policy - tick the box "block inheritance" This is the just the tip of the iceberg for group policy.  You will probably want to learn more about them, they are very powerful.

Are there tools to remotely manage this server from a Windows 2000 or XP workstation?

My question is groups... Novell could script by group name. In W2k3 I have to put a batch file in each users profile. Is there a better way... Hmmmmm?
