You mean a share I suppose?

After you create a share and you set the correct permissions you can use on PCs the "map network drive" option.

If you need this network share/drive to map on all PCs then the easiest way is to use a login script.

You have setup a WinNT40 domain? If yes, put on NETLOGON share (default share on a PDC) a batch file like this:

rem Start of login script
net use Z: \\ServerName\ShareName /PERSISTENT:YES
exit
rem End of login script

-Copy these lines in a text file and then save as "login.bat".
-Copy the login.bat file to the NETLOGON share
-Use UserManager for domain to change/add in user profiles the option to run this file at logon.
-tests

If you don't use a domain create a shortcut to this file on local startup menu of each PC.
