Win 2000 machines wont pull scripts ?!?! XP machines work fine

I've got a mix of machines on my network Win 2000 Pro and XP Pro.
It seems that 'some' users on 'some' 2000 machines wont pull login scripts right.
Some pull one script but not the other and some don't pull any...yet the same user can walk over to an xp machine an login and get scripts just fine.

All users seem to have exactly the same user settings and are in the same groups and are added to the machines they are logging into.

What am I missing here?

Check your DNS entries on the clients, assign static DNS if necessary to your 2000 machines and test again. You can also control whether scripts run syncronously (in sequence) or asyncronously (all at once) via GPO although I doubt this is your problem, sounds like DNS to me.
