Got an easy one for you....

How do I create a group policy for Word and Excel files to save the default file location to a mapped drive?  Another word, if I open up Word or Excel and go to “options”, “save” and in the box for "Default file location:" I want a group policy to set it to save to a mapped drive.
I have a MS Server 2008 DC and a 2003 DC.  I have created other policies, such as locking down the start menu but can't seem to figure out how to create this one.  I am new at creating GPO's.

Also, I am new at Experts Exchange as I just signed up.

Thanks for all your help….
