We have set the slideshow screen saver to a UNC path for the login screen saver however it does not appear that windows can access network shares prior to login. Is there a way to make this work.  

The goal is for all computers to pull the slides from a network location.

An easier approach would be to synchronize the network directory with a local folder at startup, then set the screen saver to point to the local folder.  

You could put a line like this in a startup script (under the group policy node Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Scripts\Startup):

robocopy \\server\share\slides c:\slides /MIR

Place robocopy.exe in the same directory as the script.  Make sure that all computers' AD accounts have Read permission to the network share.
