xp pro logon to domain command line from local account

we are attempting to minimize the time it takes to create a local profile on our xp professional pcs. we want to have the pcs go straight to the desktop. then present our users with a command line or uitlity that would allow them to autenicate to the domain and run the logon scripts.

You can use the AutoLogon Registry to do a automatic logon.

Do you want your domain users to use the local user profiles or to logon with a domain user profile?
If you want them to use the local profiles, the problem is that each try to access network resoures will prompt for credentials, except you store the credentials in control userpasswords2

What if you apply your scripts through GPO, using loopback?

thanks for the input.
getting to the desktop via autologon === no problem
running gpo scripts == no problem
as you pointed out the need to authenicate when we touch network drives multiple times === problem
each pc will be used by upwards of 30 people each day
I was looking for a utility like in the old win98 days that would present a logon box, type in your domain username and domain password, would then authenicate to the domain once.
again thanks for the ideas they are helpful and part of the overall plan, howver not the silver bullet.

i do not see an option like this.
Best way would be to use domain profiles. Isn't this possible?

and allowing the machine to auth. instead of the user?

Allow a computer to be trusted for delegation
