Hmmm.  I don't know of any specific mechanisim to do this, but you
might be able to do some of it with just the batch files.

For example, in your %U.bat you could call another batch file
with %COMPUTERNAME%.bat.

I'm not sure how to solve the group problem, though.  I'm
not aware of a mechanisim to retrieve the users group
from the command line.  You may be able to do this
by using visual basic logon scripts, but that's beyond
my capabilities, sorry.
