How can I make net.exe use the next available drive letter?

A. The normal syntax to map a network drive is

C:\> net use <drive letter>: \\<server>\<share>

however this can be modified to

C:\> net use * \\<server>\<share>

which will make the net use command utilize the next available drive letter.
