I was wondering if there was any way to setup a group using Windows 2000 Avdvanced Server to contain information about how the computer should be setup if this computer and or user logs into the domain. Example: create a group of users where when this users logs into the domain have certain mapped network drives, and have certain network printers available. If you can't do this through creating groups in the Active Directory, then is there any other way that you know of? Thanks in advance.

We use a log in script for the mapping of the drives. So, for example, when a user in Tampa authenticates in AD, it knows the user's primary group is Tampa, therefore maps the users drive to the Tampa server. Same thing for Reno. And when the Tampa person goes to Reno, because the primary group is Tampa, they still map to Tampa... In AD, on a user's Profile tab, in the user profile box, in the Login Script line, we just type the name of the script (login.exe). the login.exe is a basic script similar to (remember I am not a scripter!):
if primary group = Tampa, then U:\ = \\tampafileserver\share
if primary group = Reno, then U:\ = \\renofileserver\share
etc..
Hope that helps!
