I understand how to write a vb script for my windows 2003 server, but am after some advice on best practice on where to run the scripts from.

Eg:  If I want all users on domain to run a script is sysvol/scripts the best place or should I alway use group policy?

Also is there a naming convention I should use?

There seem to be heaps of pages on how to write scripts but few on how to run the, does anyone have any suggestions?

thats depends on the script. If you want to run it by group policy you have to place it in the sysvol folder. If you want to run the script as a sceduled task or manually on the domain controller, put it anywhare you want , don't place it in the sysvol directory to minimize the replicated files during the replication process among Domain controlers.
About the naming convention see the following link:
