I have one Windows 2003 box setup for drive and printer mapping. All the settings are correct. But when I login using Remote desktop, the drive and printer won't automatically shown in My computer & Printers while I login. But I am able to map it manually using //tsclient/c..
I have checked TS configuration, Registry and GPO, no luck. All settings looks good, and it is good, but just wont shown automatically.

Is there any thing I can check, like somewhere in Registry?

Any help would be appreciate...

Are you redirecting your local drives?

Go into your options and check that you are redirecting your local drives and printers.
Options -> Local Resources -> "Local devices and resources"

Yes, these settings are all set.  My problem is the mapped drives are suppose to shown in My Computer while I log on the server using RDP, but they don't.  And I could manually map these drive from 'Map Network Drive'..

Well, something is not sticking then. This is pretty straight forward. I would check the event logs for errors after logging into your RDP session.
Also, if you look into your "Other Drives" in "My Computer" while logged into your RDP session what do you see? This is where your local drives will show up.

no error msg in the event log and look into "My Computer", the local drives not shown up there.
But can be mapped manually from "Map a network drive"->Select \\tsclient..

You may have a GPO blocking you. Are you running group policies?
If so, check these settings:
Administrative Templates - > Windows Components/Terminal Services/Client/Server data redirection - And look around there are settings in here that would block you if enabled.
Also, check local computer policies if you do not have a domain controller in your network by running:
Type -> "mmc" into your run menu and add the "Group Policy Object Editor" and then check the policies listed above locally on that server.
