    Is there anyway to manage mapped network drives on workstations on a domain
    other then running a login script every time they start up? cant this be
    done through group policy or anything like that? thanks!

    You can use group policy to run a login script.
    What is it you want to do, exactly, in your login script? There are many
    kinds - simple batch files are just the start.

    I want to set it up so different groups of people get different drives...
    depending on group policies


    so say I have drives


    T:

    and I have these user groups

    All Users - t:
    Developers - R: Q:
    Benefits - V:
    Billing -Z: V:
    Accounting -Z: V: S:

    and I want them to have drives depending on what i placed after them... now
    writing a loging script for each user and setting it based on what they are
    gets annoying because they could move departments... since we move them in
    AD group wise when they move dep's already just thought it would be easier
    to have each group policy assign a drive mapping if you are in it... but if
    each GP has a login script, wouldnt you get a ton of scripts running? also
    is there anyway to hide the login script from the user so the command shell
    doesnt show?! thanks!

    Look into "ifmember" (for a batch file) or even kixtart to avoid batch files
    entirely. You might try posting/lurking in a scripting newsgroup.

    now writing a loging script for each user and setting it
    Yes, and you should post in m.p.windows.group_policy as mentioned.
