What is the best way to map drives in SBS 2011 for users? I know 2011 doesn't handle login scripts like SBS 2003 did, so I'm unsure how to proceed. Only have about 3 groups of users on the network.

The best way is to utilize Group Policy Preferences to push out drive maps. No scripts necessary. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731892%28v=ws.10%29.aspx has information on how to do this.

2011 will most certainly work with login scripts the same as 2003, but there are more options, the latest being drive preferences.  Please see the following blog article outlining all options from old to new methods at the bottom.
