My Profile Login Scripts don't run!

I am using 2003 server, and a few user accounts in an OU (with a lot of other acounts) need some extra drives mapped.
I decided the easiest way would be to just make a new script for them and run them as the 2 users "Logon script:".
I'm using the path \\DOMAIN\SCRIPTFOLDER$\thescript.vbs.

The problem is that I can log into the accounts but it doesn't seem to run the script...what am I doing wrong or not doing.

You should put the login scripts in the netlogon share on the domain controller. Simply type \\servername\netlogon and put the scripts in there. Change the path for the login script within the user account properties and log in again, you should be working fine.

Are you sure they still have access to that folder?

I'm not great at scripting, but there is another possibility; COnvert the scip into either a bat or cmd file, and creat a GPO that runs it when the machines login, or when the user logs in; create a group, add them into it, shut off the machine side, and apply the read and apply permissions to the group. Kinda the hard way, but like I said, I'm not up on scripting.
Good Luck!

a little comment on youre1m response

after chaning the login script location to \\servername\netlogon\loginfile.cmd you only have to enter loginfile.cmd to the user account properties in AD.. not the full unc path.
