Check the system event logs on the client PCs. This will tell you what errors are occuring during login.

qtstek, when you enter the path in AD it must be:

\\dc2\users\%username%

Do the folders all exist and the users have the correct rights?

I checked the event viewer and this is the error that I got:

Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The files for the redirected folder could not be moved to the new location. The folder is configured to be redirected to <\\%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%>.  Files were being moved from <C:\Documents and Settings\ibutler\My Documents> to <\\DC2\USERS\ibutler>. The following error occurred while copying <C:\Documents and Settings\ibutler\My Documents\desktop.ini> to <\\DC2\USERS\ibutler\desktop.ini>:
The security descriptor structure is invalid.
