Map a drive/folder located on TS to local PC

Hi,
I'd like to setup a mapped drive on a TS users local desktop that maps a folder from the Terminal Server so that users can scan documents locally and then save them in the mapped folder for attachment to outlook (outlook is access via TS).  How do I go about this please?
Windows Server 2003

Under Terminal Services profile, in the administrative tools, active directory users and computers, you can set a home path.  Here you can set a drive mapping or remote users and map it to a share of your choice.

hi, thanks for getting back to me.  i' had been trying that but continually get an error
THE HOME FOLDER COULD NOT BE CREATED BECAUSE THE NETWORK PATH WAS NOT FOUND

I've attached a screen shot of what I'm entering - the server that the shared drive I want to map is name 2003 Server and the folder is called nrigney in the directory users shared folders.  sharing is activated on the folders and the users has full access rights.  can you see anything wrong with this.

DonĀ“t use spaces in the path. Create a new share called "users" (or similar)  on that folder and use the path "\\2003server\users\%username%"
