    If you have just one user folder per user you'll want to set them up in the user's AD properties. If you have more than one I've always wrote a batch with net use that runs on user login, that's also set in user AD properties. You'd set OU or global network drives as gpo's. For example, if you want the Sales group to have a sales folder you could put all the users in a sales OU and create a gpo mapping for them. You could also do this through batch script on a per user basis and use a sales user as a template when a sales employee is added. It's pretty versatile and depending on the environment, mainly the number of users and groups, one might be preferred over the other.
