Is it possible to have a Win2k service access a mapped drive?

Is it possible to have a Win2k service access a mapped drive? I know it's a bit obscure, but this is the task I have been sent. The instance is I have one server running an application and I need the service to output info log to a mapped drive. I would appreciate any advice.
Win2K terminal services does not natively support drive mapping. RDPClip, from the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit tools, emulates drive mapping. You can also get third-party tools like triCerat's Simplify Data Transfer to enable drive mapping for Win2K Terminal Services. Alternatively, you can share the client-side drive and perform net use from within the terminal session to connect to it.
