Either by mapping the drive in the logon script, or by publishing a script that first maps the drive and then starts the application, instead of publishing the application directly.

logon script doesnt seem to run at all    trusted domain
cross forrest policy doesnt work on citrix  mapping drive first might be best bet

When you are in the program you can go into the File Open dialog box and if they are using the standard MS Open Dialog box you can go to the TOOLS on the top right of the window and there will be an option there to MAP NETWORK DRIVE. After you map the drive it should be saved in the profile and come up everytime the user logs in, unless you have any policies in place to delete mapped drives, we do so we can't use this method.

On a side note: if you're using a script to start the application, and the script ends after it has started the application, you'll need a registry entry to be able to see the published application as such (and not just the process) in the Citrix Management Console.
Example:

net use X: \\Server\Share
start S:\ome\Application.exe

This script will map the drive, then start Some Application and finish (while the application will continue to run). By default, you won't see the published application anymore in the CMC, because the application (the script) has already finished. You'll only find the applicaiton in the process list.
It's not a "must", just a "nice to have" in most cases.
