i have a network mixed of windows 2000 and windows xp computers authenticated to a windows 2000 server,  all the users using the 2000 computers have no problem loging with the script on of their own group policy
the users using windows xp do not see that login script (if i log the same user once on windows 2000 all the network drives will be mapped and working, the same user logs in on a windows xp, most of the map will be missing or not map at all)
any clue is welcome
thx

On the windows XP boxes try this command:

GPUPDATE /FORCE

Look in the event logs for WSH errors and SCECLI messages

What is the configuration of the Local Area Network connections? I had this problem just recently and it turned out that the problem was that the settings on the differing OS's didn't match... I fixed these and they began reading the whole network.
