I have to do a new setup for some classrooms.  The users need to be able to logon to the existing ADS, and without entering another username, map 2 drives (x: and s:)  that will be shared on Windows Server 2003. The machines also need to have the default tcp/ip printer set, but allow the users to change to one of 2 other printers if necessary.  These are XP Professional clients.  I will need to use Symantec Ghost to ghost them across the network.  I am more of a Novell person and not great at active directory - and I really need a list of steps to follow to accomplish this by Monday.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Follow the next steps:

1) make a loginscript.vbs (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc758918%28v=ws.10%29.aspx) and save it in the ADS netlogon share.

2) make some useraccounts in ADS and point the loginscript in the useraccount to the just created loginscript.

3) make the shares on the windows 2003 server with full control for everyone.

4) change the registrykey autologon (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315231) and fill in the user credentials of the newly created user accounts.

5) make a ghost image.

thanks, a couple of questions.  On #2, I can't create the ads accounts for the users in the classes. they are created by admins with more credentials than I have. i only have Admin access onnthe 2003 server and on the xp workstations.  Can I run the vbs script on computers in a group of computers?
