when i go in to some policy's the logon script doesnt appear to be there,
 the path is there but no file.

are you supposed to copy the script in to the defualt location that is suggested?

sysvol
 domainname
polices
(873yr872hr87243yr9872hr9h289hr3982h98rh298h3r23hgr) or words to that effect)
 users
  scripts
   logon


or can i just leave it in

sysvol
domainname
scripts


and what is the reasoning behind it not being there  (when i added it manually a day before..)

Are you sure it's really not there?

Try going to Tools, Folder Options, on the View tab, make sure "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.

If so and it still isn't there, how can you tell it's not there? What happens when they log on, does it run a script?

If you manually added it, can you verify if it's running YOUR script or possibly a different, default script?

If you are implementing the scripts via group policy I would copy the scripts to the location opened automatically opened by the Group Policy Object Editor for the specific OU.
Open the Group Policy Object Editor for the OU policy you want to modify
Go to the logon/logoff script object, open the logon object.
Go to add and click browse.
Copy and paste scripts directly into this window and select them to add.
If you put them in the place opened by deafult you wont be wrong, it worked for me!

Is you are using a number of policies you get a number of diff folders in

sysvol
 domainname
polices

If the scripts are not applying properly you need to look at policy inheritance to see if there are policies above that are overiding the settings
