If I understood, check this examples:

Set ADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")      'gets ad info
Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName) 'Identifies the user
strGroup = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf)) 'checks the group

Then you use a "if". Example:

If InStr(strGroup, "cn=groupname") Then
 wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "X:","\\server\share"
End if

Yes you can!

However, as of vista scripts are … not the best option (UAC causes issues). Group policies is the better option, and can be applied to groups or OU’s.

Once you have the script, create a GPO under User Configuration - Windows Settings - Scripts - Logon (example) and link to OU.

Why use a script at all, you can do everything you need via GPO's?
