just installed sbs 2003,(first time ever, total new at it...starting not to like it already, used to working with regular windows), and I want to have the 3 users have a home directory. on the properties of their user account on local path I chose chose H drive and \\servername\share\jadams for example

in the sysvol scripts directory I put in the default sbs script

net use H: \\servername\home\%username%
also
net use O: \\servername\sharedfolder

and neither works

First, USE THE WIZARDS FOR EVERYTHING.  I used to manage a large Windows Server environment and I ROYALLY mess up my first SBS install because I "knew how it works" - SBS is different - it may be based on Windows Server and Exchange Server, but if you don't use the wizards you are creating problems for yourself/company.

I strongly encourage you to learn about SBS first before continuing your deployment (I am assuming that you don't know too much about it - I didn't either).  I have a page with a brief description of my experience and several links to how to properly do things.  See:
http://www.lwcomputing.com/tips/static/sbs.asp

Next, run try opening a command prompt and running those scripts from a command prompt (map a drive to netlogon).  Then see what exactly is happening - there's no reason they shouldn't be working unless they don't exist.

Huh?  Your question was about logon scripts - now you're talking about RWW?  Read the links - all I'd be doing is rehashing what they say and they say it better.
