Do you want to do it via Group Policy or via login script?

Creating a login script is the best way to do this.

Create a bat file with the following line repeated for each shared drive;

NET USE S: \\Server\Share /YES

The above line will create a mapped drive to \\Server\Share using S: as the drive letter and it will be made persistent after a reboot by using the /YES option

Copy the bat file to the NETLOGON share of a domain controller e.g. \\DC01\NETLOGON
The bat file will then be replicated between domain controllers.

Once you've done this, open the properties of the user in the Active Directory Users and Computers tool.
In the "Profile" tab type the logon script name (e.g. user_logon.bat) into the text filed marked "Logon Script:"

the next time the user logs in on a domain connected computer the logon script will run.
