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.

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