DFS Shares

Hi Ok so i am using dfs shares for ease of use and a bit of fault tolerance, problem is my users are so used to mapped drives  this haing to get them to go \\domain\rootshare is not working for me. is there anyway to incorprate mapped drives from dfs or how could i get around this.

I mean could i use a dfs share to run a program that needs a driver letter say like the f drive to find its data?

Hi,
 Not sure of the exact problem you are having here, you can map network drives to DFS shares just as you can to regular network shares using the hostname of a networked machine.
