My server was just formatted and I put back on server 2000.

I am adding my clients back but when they log-on they use to have a z: drive in my computer to save info in.
How do I set that back up?

In Active Directory Users and Computers right click the user then select properties, then profile. Now in Home folder enable the connect button and select drive "Z:" and in the To enter \\ServerName\GeneralHomeFolder\%UserName%
Before that make sure the "GeneralHomeFolder" is being shared under that name. When the user connects to the server the first time, this folder UserName should get created automatically in the GeneralHomeFolder and it should have the correct attributes for a home folder for that user.
