Mapping network drives

I am installing a new file server.  At the moment each of the clients has a mapped network drive (which was manually maped) to the data directory where their files are.

Is there a script I can run that will disconnect the old drive mapping and map to the new server instead.

I am running windows 2003 server

you can put this in a script that will be executed for all the users
in this case the f: drive will be unmapped

net use f:  /d    <= to unmap

net use f: \\server\sharename  <=to map the good one
