I've got a function, but need to start it on Monday instead of Sunday.. Here's the function:

Public Sub CreateDayNameTimeSelectionBox(strObjectName, dtCurrentDateTime, AllowNone)
    Dim iDay
    Dim iHour
    Dim iMin
    Dim i
    Dim strSelected
    if dtCurrentDateTime = "0" then
        dtCurrentDateTime = Now()
    end if
    If IsNull(dtCurrentDateTime) then
        iDay = ""
        iHour = ""
        iMin = ""
    Else
        dtCurrentDateTime = CDate(dtCurrentDateTime)
        iDay = Weekday(dtCurrentDateTime)
        iHour = Hour(dtCurrentDateTime)
        iMin = Minute(dtCurrentDateTime)
    End If
    %>
	<select name="<% = strObjectName %>_dayName" ID="Select1" class="input-list">
		<%
		If AllowNone = True then
		    %><option value=""> - </option><%
		end if
		For i = 1 to 7
			if i = idayName then
				strSelected = " SELECTED "
			else
				strSelected = ""
			end if
			%><option value="<% = WeekdayName(i) %>"<% = strSelected %>><% = WeekdayName(i) %></option><%
		Next
		%>
	</select>
    <select name="<% = strObjectName %>_Hour" class="input-list">
        <%
        If AllowNone = True then
            %><option value=""> - </option><%
        End if
        For i = 0 to 23
            if i = iHour then
                strSelected = " SELECTED "
            Else
                strSelected = ""
            end if
            %><option value="<% = Right("00" & Trim(CStr(i)), 2) %>" <% = strSelected %>><% = Right("00" & Trim(CStr(i)), 2) %></option><%
        Next
        %>
    </select>
    <select name="<% = strObjectName %>_Min" class="input-list">
        <%
        If AllowNone = True then
            %><option value=""> - </option><%
        End if
        For i = 0 to 59
            if i = iMin then
                strSelected = " SELECTED "
            Else
                strSelected = ""
            end if
            %><option value="<% = Right("00" & Trim(CStr(i)), 2) %>" <% = strSelected %>><% = Right("00" & Trim(CStr(i)), 2) %></option><%
        Next
        %>
    </select>
    <%
End Sub

On line 27 you are checking against iDayname, a variable that I don't see defined here.

Maybe you can just change Weekday(i) to Weekday(i-1) on line 32 (twice)?

Actually, your code works just fine for me (but that may be a regional setting). In the manual it does says to add , 1 as argument to make monday the first day.

I think this is what you need:
WeekdayName(Weekday(i, 2))

Then also change:
iDay = Weekday(dtCurrentDateTime, 2)

Open in new window

Note again that this doesn't work for me, whereas your original code did.

Ah, think I found it, sorry for the confusing posts. Here's my working test code:
<%

    dtCurrentDateTime = Now()
		iDay = Weekday(dtCurrentDateTime,2)

		response.write dtCurrentDateTime & " (weekday = " & iDay & ")<br>"

		For i = 1 to 7
			if i = iDay then
				strSelected = " SELECTED "
			else
				strSelected = ""
			end if
			%>i=<%=i%>, option value="<% = WeekdayName(i,,2) %>"<% = strSelected %> : <% = WeekdayName(i,,2) %><br><%
		Next

%>

So your adjusted code would be:
Public Sub CreateDayNameTimeSelectionBox(strObjectName, dtCurrentDateTime, AllowNone)
    Dim iDay
    Dim iHour
    Dim iMin
    Dim i
    Dim strSelected
    if dtCurrentDateTime = "0" then
        dtCurrentDateTime = Now()
    end if
    If IsNull(dtCurrentDateTime) then
        iDay = ""
        iHour = ""
        iMin = ""
    Else
        dtCurrentDateTime = CDate(dtCurrentDateTime)
        iDay = Weekday(dtCurrentDateTime,2)
        iHour = Hour(dtCurrentDateTime)
        iMin = Minute(dtCurrentDateTime)
    End If
    %>
	<select name="<% = strObjectName %>_dayName" ID="Select1" class="input-list">
		<%
		If AllowNone = True then
		    %><option value=""> - </option><%
		end if
		For i = 1 to 7
			if i = iDay then
				strSelected = " SELECTED "
			else
				strSelected = ""
			end if
			%><option value="<% = WeekdayName(i,,2) %>"<% = strSelected %>><% = WeekdayName(i,,2) %></option><%
		Next

	</select>
    <select name="<% = strObjectName %>_Hour" class="input-list">
        <%
        If AllowNone = True then
            %><option value=""> - </option><%
        End if
        For i = 0 to 23
            if i = iHour then

            if i = iMin then
                strSelected = " SELECTED "
            Else
                strSelected = ""
            end if
            %><option value="<% = Right("00" & Trim(CStr(i)), 2) %>" <% = strSelected %>><% = Right("00" & Trim(CStr(i)), 2) %></option><%
        Next
        %>
    </select>
    <%
