There is simple solution with logon script un registry file, which puts 
necessary registry keys in the user enviroment:

=== logon.bat ======
echo off
net use g: /home
regedit /S \\server\netlogon\usf.reg
net use k: \\server\pub$
net use p: \\server\appz
net time \\server /set /yes
==== end ============

==== usf.reg ========

Shell Folders]
"My Pictures"="G:\\PROFILE\\My Pictures"
==== end ==============

If you decide to use Group policies, IMHO you can write our own 
administrative templates, but I don't have big experience with Group
