We have a shared folder on our Server 08 machine. \\server\f$\sharedfolder

There is no particular OU or group policy to map to this drive. We have specific people in different departments, with different OUs and groups accessing this drive.

I would like to map this drive to a new user, so that when they login, they will have a network drive, with a specifically-designated letter, that is the shared folder. (S: sharedfolder)

Without writing a new group policy, or changing anyone's OUs... What is really the best way to do this?

Create a logon script and assign it to the user VIA their account in users and computers.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
