You would normally put that command into the login script file and it would execute for each user as they log into Windows.

i must be asking this wrong.  I want every computer on the network to have a mapped drive that I choose to be on their computer the next time they log off or reboot.  How would I do that?

If you want to make a mapped drive available to each user, the easiest way is to include the net use command in the login script file, so that anytime a user logs in (or restarts and then logs in) the drive will map to the letter that you specify. I'm not sure what other mapping you may want to do or what you mean by a user mapping while logging off or rebooting. The mapping would only be useful to have when a user is logged in.

OK.  So what are the steps to do this?
