Our Windows 98 clients are not running global login scripts on our newly installed Windows 2000 server. (In the group policy object).

For example, we have changed drive mappings in our new scripts, but the last mappings are being made when the user logs on.

Your Windows 98 machines are not AD aware.  They will run user login scripts specified under the profiles tab under AD users & computers.

HI,

You have to install AD client for Windows 98 to Run the Login Script on Windows 98.

This is probably a very silly question but our IT dept was in crisis so I (a mere developer) had to ask it,

Thanks
