Install Group Policy management console (on a windows 7/8 client joined to the domain)

Open GPMC and create a new GPO.  Navigate to User Config, Preferences, Windows Settings, Drive Maps and set one up there.  Link the GPO to the correct OU or the domain root and when users log on they will get that mapped drive.
