2.) In the map network drive window select a letter to assign to the drive. Letters can only be used once in the Windows system therefore every drive must have its own. After a letter has been assigned type the path for the share you desire. 

\\fpsa is the servername where most of the staff use shares
\\fpsb is the servername where student shares are housed.

Use the format \\server\sharename
