TS/Citrix not mapping local drives

I have terminal services 2003 and citrix presentation server 4.0 setup.  If I logon as a user who is a admin on the server the local drives map through fine.  If I logon as a user who is not and Admin the local drives will not map through.  I have checked in both the ICA client settings and RDP settings and both are set to allow local drive mapping.  Is there any security setting I need to change  to allow all users to map their local drives.

Check the Group Policy setting for "Do not allow drive redirection" in Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Client/Server data redirection

Try using the RSOP (Resultant Set of Policy) plugin for the MMC, or the Group Policy Results Wizard in the GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) to see what Group Policy settings are being applied to the users, and how they differ from the Group Policy settings are being applied to the admin accounts.

Ok after appling the GPO when I logon as a normal user I get my local drives mapped through.  But if I wait about 10 min then logon to Citirix with the same user account the local drives are no longer mapping though.  The only way they come back is if I edit the GPO and reboot the server.  They come back for a while then dissapear again.

Also when I run the RSOP on the server no matter which user I run it for the computer configuration has a red X on it but if I look it shows the GPO for local drive mapping as disabled.

I figured out the issue was our logon script.  It is set to delete all map network drives when a user logs on.  In the new version of Presentation server 4.0 it mapps the local client drives as network drives.  Made a few changes to the script and now the local drives are mapping through fine.  Hope this helps if any one else was having the same issue.
