This is easily possible. All u need to do is to create a new ou and place all the users that u need this feature in this ou and create a policy for this ou. To create a policy just right click this ou and in the properties u can find the group policy tab. Click new and do the required changed in that policy. In the default home directory just put the following
mapdrive is the drive that will be the mapped folder obn the server or location that u want this folders of users to stay.%username% has to be as it is as when a user logs in the folder is automatically created.
Make sure that u create a script to map the shared folder on the server.
