Sorry for asking a dumb question, but I've been trying to get this working all day and, whilst there are lots of ways that don't work the way I want it to, I know that there must be a simple way of getting it to work. Surely!

All I want (and why is it that the simplest requests cause so much trouble?) is a basic Logon script that brings up a HTA window (without a title bar, cos some moron will only close it down otherwise!) that says hello (by name and computer) lists what the script is doing, maps a handful of basic drives (one is individual to each User), and closes down.

The HTA would look like this (use your imagination! :) )
Hello, [Username]
You are connected to [Computer Name]
Mapping Network Drives. Please wait...
Mapping G: to [Shared Drive]
Mapping H: to [Individual User Folder]
Checking any additional network drives (based on AD Groups)
Logon complete.

Any help? Please?
