JUNCTION command returns error: reparse point buffer is invalid

I am trying to use the "junction" command on a Dell GX110 (windows 2000 SP-4 )PC with 512M ram.
I am using Deep Freeze on the computer but want to keep the temporary internet files from my "kiosk" account.  I have a "T" "thawed" folder and moved the kiosk's "local settings" folder to "T".
I then ran the command:
junction "c:\documents and settings\kiosk\local settings" "t:\kiosk\local settings".
This works with my newer XP kiosk PC's but I get an error when running on these GX110 systems.
The error is : "the data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid"
I can not figure out as to why the error is occuring.  Can someone assist?
thank you...

Additional findings:
After further testing, it is only the "T" drive (thawed) that produces the error message.  I can create a junction on "C" drive.  I have a call into the vendor as well.

rwarren99:  I assume you are using the DeepFreeze product.  I am using that product as well, and receive the exact same error.  Can you advise as to what you found as a resolution?

Unfortunately,  I have sense replaced the PC's with XP system which JUNCTION works without a problem.  As for making a 2000 work, I can not remember what I did.  Files that were helpfull for me were Linkd, Delrp and Mountvol.  These are MS tols that you can download from their site and are on the resource CD.  Also a nice tool is Linkmagic.
Hope these help.
