Why doesn't my login script run on some clients?

The login script does not run on some clients on my Win2k Active Directory server. The login script runs fine on most workstations. The scripts are located in \ServerNameSYSVOLDomainNamescripts. This happens on Win98 and Win2000 stations. Any ideas?

If the scripts are distributed via Group Policy Objects (GPO), the Win98 system would not run it since they are not Active Directory aware. If they fail on other systems, you may need to rewrite the script. Manually test the scripts on each system type.
