When the user logs in I want them to have a mapped drive on the machine
they are at and at each machine they login to, under their login. It
is not for user profile or anything like that. It is just a path they
need for other documents.

So, if I want, say, J:\myunc\myfolder, can that be done with AD User
and Computers? I have tried \\net use in the past but they have
restrictions on what they can and cannot do, or at least they did on
98, which some of these clients still are.

Thank you for any help.

Have you tried in a logon script using a GPO? Of course, this won't work
with Win9x or NT4. For those operating systems, you'll have to use the NT4
style logon script by placing the script in the NETLOGON share, and
specifying the script name under the AD user profile tab in the logon script
box.
