I've got two servers running Windows Server 2008. The first is the domain controller and the second has the Terminal Services.

I need each user that logs on to Terminal Services Server to have two or more mapped pre-assigned network drives.  How should I set this up?

    I would use group policy preferences. You can assign mapped drives via the GPP and then assign the proper GPOs to the users or group you want to get the drives via Item-Level Targeting
