I have a windows 2000 server I am temporarily putting in place at a remote site as the old server's warranty is running out (old server is nt4 domain).  We've opted to place a workgroup windows 2000 server in place until we join it to our AD domain (over vpn) at the central site in approx. two months.  The remote site has approximately 5 users on win95/98, nt4 and windows 2000pro.  If I use a windows 2000 workgroup server can I use my login scripts?  If so, do they need placed on each client or on the server?  I need to map into the shares and set their printers, once we are joined into the new AD domain we'll use our group policies and login scripts but in the meantime anyone know of a nice simple solution no too complicated for the users?

Your response is appreciated.

You will need to get the clients to use the scripts.

Could you not just add it to the startup folder?

2000 you can use gpedit.msc and add it in the scripts logon section like in a GPO.
