What is the best way to remove the old \serverdrive directory?

I need to deploy DFS to Windows 2000 and XP desktops. What is the best way to remove the old serverdrive directory to Drive Letter mappings and add the Network Places entries pointing to the DFS shares?
One possible way to do this would be through a VBScript that dumps out the existing drive letter mappings, deletes them, and then creates DFS shares. You would need someone who knows VBScript fairly well to do this, but the advantage of writing a script is that once written for a given workstation it can be run on any of the machines in the organization and would need little supervision.
