You can map network resources using PUSHD command instead of NET USE.

Just as if a network path is specified, PUSHD will create a temporary drive letter that points to that specified network resource, and then change the current drive and directory, using the newly defined drive letter. Temporary drive letters are allocated from Z: on down, using the first unused drive letter found.

Loopback command is POPD; the POPD command will delete any temporary drive letter created by PUSHD when you POPD that drive off the pushed directory stack.
