Windows 2003 Login Scripts for different user

A/m above is it possible?

I would like to create a few login scripts to map drives for certain users. In the AD snap in, under PROFILE ... must i put the full path of where the script can be found or is there a place to save them and use it whenever configured?

The logon script(s) need to go into %Systemroot%\SysVol\SysVol\your.domain.name\scripts.
In the user's profile, you enter only the name of the script, without the directory.

if you browser to any one of your dc's, do you see the scripts in there? browse like this \\dc1\netlogon

I guess you have Windows XP clients? Use LPT2, non-administrators aren't allowed to map to an existing port in XP.
