Is there any way of avoiding replication of netlogon folder? It´s because we have 13 sites and we want the 95 and 98 clients of each site use the logon script from the site it belongs to. Each site has it's own logon script file, so we don't want it to be replicated.

How are you specifying what login script your clients are running currently?
Are your users logging on at multiple sites?

If you can't specify a specific login script for each user/site because they go to different sites, it would seem that you would be better setting up a 'forest' in AD.
Have one root domain and then have each site be a sub-domain of the root.  This should allow you the granularity that you're looking for.

Otherwise, simply make 13 different login scripts, put them in the netlogon folder, and specify the login script for each user to use in their AD account properties.
