Login Scripts - Strange Thing Happening

I have had 2003 server set up for a while now and have set up a few login scripts to map a few drives and everything was working fine.
Haven't changed anything including scripts or DNS in about a month.
Then my pc (xp pro) along with a couple other specific 'users' started not to get their mapped drives.
In my case I pull 4 drives all from one simple vb script.
The symptoms of my pc were at first for some reason I would only get 2 of those drives at login, that started the day before yesterday.
Now I dont get any drives.
95% of all other users on the network get the drives just fine EXCEPT SOME people who have roaming profiles when they log into machines that are not their own.( they are set as admin users on the pc tho)
I can navigate to the Scripts directory on the server easily and double click on my script and it will instantly map the drives but I cant figure out why it would just stop pulling and running them by itself.

Thanks for any hints or tips to solve this problem.

check settings in Active Directory (syncronious-asyncronious login ...)
i don't remember the exact name
do you run the script per gpo or per user logon script?
are you running win2k or XP
if so look for the user.dat file located in the document & settings -user data and rename it to user.old

you my have some problems to rename it because he is in use to use another profile with admin privileges for this action

Please re me if it solve your problem

good luck
With XP the fast logon might be a problem. There is also a setting in AD - GPO that you can "wait for network" during logon.
