troubleshooting Question

Is it better to have one VBS script to control everything in a domain (with different OUs and two separate file servers), or use group policies (with scripts) to control groups?

What's a better practice:  1) to have one domain login script (a lengthy if/then/else file controlling drive mappings) or 2) to set up login scripts via group policies.  The domain has two organizationsl units (in two separate sites--using two different file servers).  The domain login script is lengthy, and someone would have to change/edit the script every time a new department/group is created.  Wouldn't it be better to control these settings/login settings via group policy, instead?
