Is there way to avoid mapped letter drives?

We have a lot of shared drives in our environment and seems to hard to manage a lot of drive letters.  Users have to remember which drive letter for which drive, etc.  Then manage Group Policies etc.
Is there way to not specify the drive letter and just have a name like > Share1>

Any other advice or experience from other folks would be helpful.
Thanks!!

Certainly you can create shortcuts to mapped drives (or UNCs) and name the shortcuts whatever you like.  Deploying and managing the shortcuts would be problematic.

What about just creating a desktop shortcut or centrally located directory which has a bunch of windows shortcuts pointing to all your network mappings via UNC path.  This would reduce all the overhead required to mount and poll network shares as mapped drives.
