win2k server domain workstations wont initially load login script

Our network is running on a win2k server domain. We have a variety of different workstations running both windows 98 and window xp pro. Everything has been working fine, but then suddenly my workstations will not load the login script.

here is the series of events:

1.) Turn the workstation on
2.) login to the domain with username and password (this has been tested with several different accounts.)
3.) it says its loading the login script and a dos screen flashes (so fast that i can't read what it says, or pause it)
4.) workstation comes on-line

Once the workstation is online I can browse to the login script on the network and load it manually just fine.

What could have caused this? and how can I make it work correctly again?

Thanks

Hi
Does this happen with only xp clients? Does the script run if you logoff then logon again?
If so first maybe check that wait for network is enabled in group policy on the server

It sounds like the script is being pulled, could you post the contents of the script? Presumably you are running this through logon script in user accounts in AD and through netlogon - It may also help to add a pause line into strategic areas of your script or echo etc to give you chance to see what's happening with the script itself,

This turned out to be a scripting error on my part.
