Is there a way to change the order of excution of policies and preferences contained within a GPO? We have a unique environment in which the start menu redirection policy should point to a mapped drive letter which is set via login script policy. This seems to only work if the redirection is to a local drive as opposed to a network drive.

Try going into the Group policy to computer policy\administrative templates\system\group policy and set "Apply group policy for users asynchronously during logon" and see if this works.

Oh, you may also want to use your group policy to run your logon scripts if you have an all Windows 2000 environment.

Within a GPO the policies are applied sequentially. The policy at the top of the group is applied last. There should be an up / down button to move the policy up and down the list.
