Hi there list,

Okay, so we have some Novell administrator type people where I work.
Finally after years of preaching to them about how much Novell sucks
(opinion), we're doing away with it.  Novell has something built into it for
mapping drives that is like the ifmember Resource Kit utility.  So, one of
these Novell guys just asked me how the same thing is done in a 2000 domain.
I told him about the ifmember utility, but then I got to thinking about it.
It seems that there must be some other feature to use for mapping drives
based on group membership.  Like I'm thinking that the correct way to
connect people to shares based on membership would be by using policies.
But I may have the wrong idea about what policies are used for.  In an
environment with 750 users, is there a better way to map people other than:

if member groupname (net use f: \\server\share1)
if member groupname2 (net use g: \\servershare2)

I don't see that as being a big deal or an inconvenient way to do it, but
I'm a big fan of doing things the standard or Microsoft-recommended way as
opposed to just coming up with something that works.  If this is the
Microsoft-recommended method, then fine!

Thanks a lot,

Ray at work
