    Kind of very new at attemping this on a 2003 server as I have never needed
    to do it before.

    I need to be able to have users when they log into the domain to, Map a few
    drives (with a home share for each user) and have them re-map the My
    Documents folder over to their home share (so I don't have to go to each
    machine after they log in to make that change), also the server is backed
    up, not the desktops. Not using roaming profiles, and really don't want to
    in this case of the different apps on each machine, the blank shortcut thing
    would drive 1/2 the people crazy.

    Is there a place I can learn how to write these in a simple starting way,
    then grow from there. I'm a network admin, not a programmer, so not sure on
    the code needs to be written, like I said, I never needed to do it before.
    If you have some good links to get me started that would be very helpful.

    Thanks in advance !

    That gave me the basics but, I need it to map to a user name when they log
    on and I'm a total newbie at logon scipts or VB.

    I did find this web site, that gave me some better ideas on where to start


    But, I don't see anything that would move the "My Documents" (all XP
    machines on the domain), to their home share and display it as that in
    windows. So in a nut shell I need...

    1. user name to map drive, for example, user name is "mike" his share is
    named "mike" in a hidden folder on the server \\server\user\mike. I need on
    logon to map to say a X: drive (I figured this one out)
    I need this one....
    2. When the user logs in, to make their "My Documents" folder to be on their
    X: drive, and when they click on "My Documents" to go to X:\My Documents.
    Also to check to see if it alreay lives there, if it does, not to do
    anything (so files don't get written over).

    Can this all be done with out me spending 6 months learning VB ?

    Thanks !
