Windows 7: Setting network drives across all users

Setting network drives across all users

I have a situation where I have folks logging into the domain with their respected credentials. I setup the first users with everything they needed and then realized I would need to imitate this over 4-5 other users on the same machine. Is there a way to do this more effectively rather than by hand?

I want all users to have the same network drives (I have 6 different locations) and I want them to have the same desktop icons for accessing content.

This is just for a handful of users, everyone else on the domain is as normal.

You can create an user group instead, then assign the required permissions to that group and finally make all the affected users member of the group so that they get all the permissions at once. Changing the permissions on the group will also affect all those users at the same time.

Well I would like to avoid user groups if possible.

Basically that says no, unless a group is made.

Could someone point me in the right direction of making the appropriate group in Server 2008?
