Are you referring to Kixtart?  And are you trying to do this with a Small Business Server 2003?

Because there's no reason at all to use that.  By default, when you add a user on SBS with the Add User wizard, a home folder is automatically created at \\USERS\%Username%

Furthermore, if you run the My Documents Folder Redirection wizard, the My Documents folder will automatically be relocated to be within their home folder.

For department mapped drives, I'd suggest that you use SharePoint document libraries... but if you aren't ready to make that transition, you can just map drives by modifying the SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.bat file.  Instructions for that are here:  http://msmvps.com/blogs/kwsupport/archive/2005/08/22/63745.aspx

TechSoEasy,  in the future, where would I see that this was cross posted? I don't see it referenced here...

sbodnar,

So, since it's SBS, my initial comments are appropriate and it would be nice if you'd respond to those recommendations.
