Roaming Profiles and Windows Script Host error on Small Business Server 2003 and XP workstations

I am trying to setup XP workstations to access a windows small business server 2003.  I have a login script to map drives and printer connections to the server.  The script will work with a local profile on the XP workstations.  However, when used with roaming profiles the following error occurs on login - "Windows Script Host - Loading your settings failed (Access is denied.)"  Is there a security setting that needs to be modified on either the workstations or server to allow the login script to run with roaming profiles?  Thanks for any help.

Check the permissions on the following two registry keys using and ensure
that the user has access:

HKEY_USERS\<username>\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings
