Logon Scripts arent running the first time user logs in.

I have 2003 server and some logon scripts to map some drives.
On most machines the script runs when they reboot and login, but on a few others the scripts don't run right after a reboot.
I notice 2 things about the affected machines...
1. If I wait about 2-3 minutes after the machine has rebooted and then login the script runs and the drives map fine.
2. If I login immediately and then logout and then right back in the script runs on the second login.

I went to the GPO for my root OU and set 'Computer Configuration > "Always wait for the network at comptuer startup and logon=ENABLED" , but it doesn't seem to help as a couple users can login to one machine and only get a couple drives or none at all and then login to another machine and everything works fine.

Any other suggestions?

Might be cache logon locally on the problem machines, but where are you putting the scripts?
Netlogon - GPO - Logon ?

No the problem occurs on both 2000 and XP. It seems to occur to those who have roaming profiles.

On my vbscript i resolve the problem with a time delay of 10 second BEFORE connect the network drives. The delay permits to the network to be fully up.
