Running logon scripts from a share on another server

We have a NT4 domain and are moving to an Active Directory Domain 2003. Home office has decided we will not use the NETLogon share to hold the logon scripts. We have implemented Group Policy; however, we get an error 1050. Is there a way to run Logon Scripts from a share on another server not the DC? Is the path for logon scripts set somewhere in the server's registry or policy?
This is not recommended. I highly advise that you re-address your strategy and utilize the NETLOGON share for logon scripts. Alternatively, there are 3rd party tools that would let you assign logon scripts from anywhere. Check out www.GPanswers.com for a listing of 3rd party tools.
