I have recently booted up my Server 2008 test machine and decided to learn about Active Directory. Upon doing so I got active directory installed and setup with no problems. I have joined one of my local machines to the domain and have my account on it
also. But there are a few problems I'm having.
I hope someone could help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

You want to set-up the Logon script for your users. There are two ways as
http://www.petri.co.il/setting-up-logon-script-through-gpo-windows-server-2008.htm [Group policy]
I've used the first one but the second one seems more flexible
in your logon script, use the NET USE command to mount shared folders something like
NET USE M: \\fileservername\music_folder
obviously you want to make sure that your users have access to this folder [use groups to manage folders security, instead of assigning to individual users]
your script can add more logic for example to check if the shared folder has been mounted and so on.
hope this helps.

I setup a script called General.vbs and put the following code in it:
NET USE M: \\SERVERNAME\Music
NET USE S: \\SERVERNAME\Share
How do I setup my users HOME directory?

Under your Active Directory user's properties dialog box and in the Profile tab, there is a Home Folder, check connect , specify a drive letter and shared folder to mount on that drive letter. I am sure if you google/bing you'll find some good tutorials
One more thing, not sure but I think your logon script has to have .bat extension.
