Group Policy not effecting 98 SE Machines

Our server has Server 2003 running, along with exchange 2003, though that doesn't matter. Anyway, we have XP Pro, 2000 and 98 SE clients. In the Group Policy, under User Configuration -> Windows Settings, I have logon, and logoff scripts set. They run on the XP and 2000 machines, but not the 98 ones. I noticed that if I set up logon scripts in the user properties in the Active Directory, those scripts run on the 98 machines, but I would rather do it all from the Group Policy. Is 98 just not supported here or what? Your help is very greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hi energymanz,

Windows 98 doesn't support these kind of futures. I suggest you try upgrading those workstations to 2k

These computers running 98SE (or at least most of them) are Celeron 400's, with 64 megs of ram. Is this gonna cut it for upgrading? Or am I going to NEED to upgrade hardware also?

The specs you mention are close to the minimum specs of win2k.. :-( So for some good performance, I suggest you either upgrade the hardware or get some new machines.

You'll have to check the manual of the motherboards on those computers to see if they support something faster (I'd say at least a Pentium III 500 Mhz) and if they support at least 128MB of internal memmory.
